I Love it!!!

Around here we are building/growing windbreaks for natural erosion control for the wide open spaces,,, but the cities are doing fine with their trees and threir building and even their heat island in which small towns are consistently 5 degrees warmer in the cool seasons than the wide open spaces...

Now if Iowa would just put in some trees, then Shytown would be no more, "The Windy City" than Green Bay... Of course that has already been addressed... "WildFires"...

Nature's Wise and Loving Hand or Prelude to Desolation??? WildFires... Utah, Montana, etc... I remember one Summer we didn't have a Summer,,, only the stink of wildfires in the western US...

In my opinion,,, Prelude to Desolation...

But I digress...

Are you insinuating that mankind growing trees in Illinios is better than having "Grasslands" dominate the landscape, over these millions and millions of acres, outside the Windy City???
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
