Raleigh North Carolina, City of Oaks and lots of other trees. If you have ever flown into Raleigh from a city like New York or Philly or Boston you know what I'm talking about.
After living in Philadelphia for years I got used to flying in over row upon row of houses, warehouses, massive snake like highways. I am always impressed when I fly into Raleigh as all you can see as the plane approaches is trees (creative license, it's not all you can see!).
The City of Oaks is how Raleigh is described and when you see downtown you appreciate why.
the city of Raleigh enacted a comprehensive tree conservation ordinance which took effect on May 1, 2005.
The ordinance establishes standards for preserving trees on lots that are two acres or larger, occupied or vacant.
Everywhere you go in Raleigh you will see trees and efforts to protect them. There is something about trees
in a city that adds so much. Apart from the obvious, shade, color, oxygen, the effect of breaking up the view of building after building cannot be measured but is a great addition to the landscape. However let me say
that Raleigh has some beautiful buildings both old and new.
