I really enjoyed being in Colorado the few times I was out there for business, but I have to wonder if I could live there. There are so few trees, and no, I dont mean the kind that you smoke. I am in the North East and used to everything looking pretty lush in the summer. I also find it works wonders for my mood.

I'm from NJ and there are trees everywhere here so I see where you're coming from. There are just so many other positives to Colorado that losing the trees wouldn't be a huge deal for me personally.

You also lose ocean access. Its funny, I barely go anymore, but I would always like to live near a coast.

I am also from NJ, and there are a lot of positives about living anywhere else, IMO. It is not all bad, but really, most things I would miss here I could get elsewhere.

I don't go often either just because I'm not fond of the ocean here in NJ. I do like living here, I grew up here and I'm pretty fond of it.. But Colorado is so beautiful haha.

I'm from a heavily wooded state and had trouble adjusting to the lack of trees when I moved to Colorado. But what I lost in forestry, I gained in lack of humidity, fewer bugs, and the most amazing sunrises and sunsets you can imagine.

I still miss the trees. It's weird that my kids are growing up not using the phrase "the woods"
