Park City's urban forest

When we moved to Park City, more than 32 years ago, there were not many trees around, to the point that from our wooded Chappaqua home in New York, to Utah's arid high desert, my wife hated the barren landscape we found upon arriving there.

Since that time, things have changed a lot. The tiny aspen and evergreen saplings have turned into large, mature trees, overly crowded and often time, far to close to the homes for good views and fire safety.

With that new grown forest has come a complete ecosystem, including birds, rabbits, squirrels and regular year-round visits by deer, elks and moose that always manage to find enough leaves to eat, and flowers or veggie gardens to trample.

From empty desert to lush urban forest in just three decades!
