I see in Denver they also completely clear a field of trees and pack the houses in so tight you can reach out a window and touch the next house over.
They build subs like that here too - I don't like them at all. I much more prefer trees - I've got over 100 trees on my 2/3'rds acre out in the north burbs.
I can always look up at those 40' tall pines and Ashs/Oaks and see which way the wind is blowing and how much force it has so I can plan my route. I like the wind at my back on the way home.
Man, there is always a complainer in the crowd! Why is that?
Just a little geography lesson.
Denver is in the plains. It is a high desert. There are no natural trees. Every single tree you see is planted. Average rainfall is 15.4 inches per year. No trees were "cleared." Every tree is precious, and there is great consternation over any tree that is removed for any project.
Sorry you don't like my "subs." By the way we have approximately 60 feet between houses, and over 55 acres of open space in our 350 house community.
I can - walk to 9 different restaurants, a supermarket, laundry, hair cutting place, park and ride for mass transit, etc., etc. Yet, I can also leave my back door and bike for 30 miles with crossing only 3 streets. Can you say the same?
This seemed like sort of a "put down" - I certainly hope not. That was NOT the purpose nor the point of this thread! Enjoy your trees.
