I would have said Atlanta was up there and he has them pegged at number two. Interesting. I love a good shade tree.

And they suck.

Has BR just decided to go ahead and plant trees in the street yet?

Silliest crap ever.

Agreed.

Maybe we love trees down here because the heat is so oppressive.

I really like the way the trees on Highland Road essentially connect to form a "ceiling" over the roadway. There are some stretches where this effect is really pronounced.

I agree. I love tree-aligned streets like that. They are all over NOLA. It's just a shame the actual streets suck down here.

They estimated we lost 5% of our tree canopy in Gustav. Entergy loves it. Less shade equal higher usage

Move to Mandeville. They love them here.
Trees, especially bug-infested pine trees 3' from a commercial building, are a protected species.

After cutting 'em off my building 3x, I hate trees.

Sorry for the rant. I am actually not a mental patient.
