Cool maps, although it's one of those clicky slideshow things that I hate. Here's one showing huge Texas in Africa.

America is home to eight percent of the world’s forests, having around 228 billion trees in the country. And, as the map clearly illustrates, those forests are more densely populated in the northwest as well as east of the Mississippi River.

Middle America Has More Farmland Than Trees



Contrary to popular belief, the wood-per-acre average has significantly grown since the 1950s, which is amazing since the European settlers uprooted a lot of growth when they first arrived in America. Now more than ever, people realize the importance of nature. In 2007, the then-mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, made plans to plant one million trees In New York by 2017 — the goal was met!

These are all abandoned railroads. Kind of disgraceful.

This one is misleading. I recognize two in my state that have been converted as part of the Greenways Rails to Trails Program.
