investintrees According to the SF Gate Home Guide "When lightning hits a tree, it steams water inside the tree, busts bark from the trunk and branches and can even split a tree open in extreme cases. Almost four in five trees struck by lightning show damage, according to the Georgia Forestry Commission. Some die within days; others make a full recovery. If they survive, these trees remain stressed and prone to problems such as pest infestations while they recover." Tall trees are most at risk from lightning strikes and an arborist can help protect them by installing wires that allow the electricity from the lightning to be safely grounded.

  •   oinkay I say portland too 5d
  •   investintrees Here's a clue, it's not Portland 5d
  •   dunkis100 Sf 5d
  •   red_phoenix_rising New York? I only say that because of Central Park. 5d
  •   investintrees San Francisco, unfortunately has the worst coverage of the cities mentioned above with only 13% and is well below the national average of 27%. Tree canopy coverage refers to the proportion of land area covered by tree crowns as viewed from the air. According to this measure, the city with teh best coverage is actually Pittsburgh, so the answer is D. 5d
  •   investintrees Portland has 30% and New York has 21%. Pittsburgh has 42% canopy coverage. 5d
  •   localecologist Go PGH! 4d
