I love trees, bushes and flowers! But I am afraid the developers and City officals who plan our communities do not. I have seen thousands of trees being cut down every year near where I live in Northern Va. Yes, there are still some forested areas in older neighborhoods but our urban forest is going fast.

What City in America has the most trees per square mile?

Columbus, OH also has lots of trees and flowers, the highway and the walkways are beautiful. Grasses intertwined.

Missouri is known for the amount of trees they have. It's more rugged the closer you go towards Arkansas. And lots of wildflowers too. I loved it there!

Where I am in Cleveland we have the Metroparks, which is in a valley and the area is protected. It's absolutely beautiful.
But I was out of the area for the past couple of years and since I have come back I've noticed a lot more construction and with it trees are being wiped out and along with that everything else like wildlife trying to find new "homes".
Build, build, build....anything for the almighty dollar....

Minneapolis/St. Paul and the surrounding suburbs have a lot of trees, probably the most I have seen other then in the mountains. Northern MN has more trees then people .

We have a lot of trees here in Jax.

One of Jacksonville's claims to fame is our parks system. Jax has the largest urban park system in the US, more than 390 parks and over 80,000 acres (according to our city website).

Hello everyone, this is palmlover and I asked in reguards to growing certain palms and peaches; and nectarines in my zone 4 region. our zone was up graded to 4 several months ago and I know there are peach and nectarines that will endure 1000 hours + of winter chilling for growth, not to mention in helping with the flowering and fruting, not to mention leaf growth and development, but i'm hoping there are certain palm trees fan and feather types, (I know for certain there is at least one feather type) that grows in Iran in the very cold regions where cold, snow; not to mention sub zero conditions exists for the winter time and still comes out smiling like a rose. If anybody knows of these plants I can grow here in northwest Minnesota, please let me know, and thanks.
