Jacksonville's tree coverage is definitely a plus when measuruing quality of life.

You don't have to dive to the outskirts of town to enjoy a nice wooded park, for

example. However, I do agree that the Southside has been doing a crappy job

of retaining tree coverage when compared to the westside. The Riverside,

Avondale, Murray Hill, Ortega, and Old Arlington areas of town are ideal when it

comes to tree cover in suburban areas. I love the feel of those area of town.

They are more peaceful and lack the hustle & bustle of the more "open" Southside.
