Urban trees

It's no secret that I love trees. My little blogger photo is a tree, and I've posted photos of them before. Now I have an excuse to post more. This past day was Tu B'Shevat, a Jewish holiday also called the "New Year of Trees." One custom to commemorate the day is to plant trees; another is to sample fruits and grains from the Seven Species.

So here are a few tree photos set in cities, where trees are needed keenly for the life and character they bring to any kind of neighborhood.

Lovely shots, especially that last one!
Happy Tu B'Shevat.

Glorious shots! I've been thinking a lot about urban trees myself.
