51% of respondents prefer as many big shade trees as possibleIt makes sense that a majority of our readers love shade trees. What's remarkable, is that a small percentage reported living in a desert. It is likely that some of these readers were just being silly when they indicated this preference; however after studying the geographic locations of our growing readership, I can see how many may simply live in arid places - Portugal, Persia, etc.
39% of respondents prefer one or two shade trees and some small ornamentals
3% of respondents apparently live in a desert
None of the respondents prefer only small ornamental trees in their landscape, and none of the respondents prefer that trees just go away and stay in the forest.
