Trees pay us back - Largo, FL edition

Largo's growing tree canopy has benefits - St. Petersburg Times:
By last count in 2005, there were 17,411 trees on city property, with a value of $15 million.

And, according to city parks superintendent Greg Brown, there could be many more that have yet to be counted.

The current number of trees in the city, which range from thousands of queen palms and oak trees to single examples of exotic evergreens like the monkey puzzle tree, has been boosted in recent years by city efforts — the Mayor's Street Tree Planting Program and Communitrees.
