Driving around town, it fascinates me to see which areas have trees. It seems that more prosperous areas have more and bigger trees. In the summer, driving under a canopy of trees is so much cooler – and more beautiful – than in a tree desert.
Commitment and care are necessary to have trees in our neighborhoods. (I feel sad when people tell me they don’t want to bother.)
