    Pine trees. Not worth much, break like a twig, are extremely messy, and rather ugly to me.

    I've got 120 acres of them standing in Grant Parish. They look friggin' beautiful to me.

    Back when I lived in Louisiana, I'd have been inclined to agree with you, but now that I live in North Texas, where trees are less than plentiful, I believe that any tree is a good tree.

    perhaps my opinion is skewed since all of them look like this due to hurricanes. :grin:

    Now this is beauty. Let me tell you a secret . . . money grows on trees. :wink:

    A gas well in the foreground would make them even prettier! There is always hope.

    Stacey, I'm with you on this one. I grew up in the Midland/Odessa area. A tree there is a sacred thing. Nothing but a few mesquites grow naturally in the Permian Basin.

    Most folks here will think I'm lying when I mention a west Texas town named "Notrees". Back me up on that one, will 'ya? :eek:ldskule:

    I've eaten there a few times (not in Dallas) and always thought they were inexpensive.

    I wouldn't trade my oaks for anything.
