It always seems kind of absurd to see a tree poking out of its alotted 4 X 4 foot square on the sidewalk. It is by no means a natural occurrence, but it would be a greater detriment to humans if it did not exist. Municipal agencies place plants around cities for both aesthetic and environmental purposes. So how does this plant life function within the context of nature? If a shade tree was transplanted from the city back into a forest, would it then become nature? Where is the point when nature stops being natural?

My use of the blog is to allow others to become apart of this project, so I urge you to leave comments expressing your viewpoint.
