Where we go, trees are slow to grow

There's a nice article in the Toronto Star this weekend about how the idyllic "tree-lined suburb" might not show up for about a century thanks to those big earth moving machines and a utter disregard for the complexities of soil. If the link is broken, search for the articles title: Why Suburbs Will Never Have Tall Trees.

In related news, the ASLA and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center are putting together a LEED style metric system called SITESS.
