It was hard enough living in a large metropolitan city, but having no city parks and trees makes it even worse.
A lot of cities growing to these sizes try to implement parks and trees to give residents a mix of varying ecological environments.
On top of that, trees release oxygen and can dilute some of the toxic fumes car exhaust and factory emissions. Since trees must also absorb carbon dioxide to stay alive, they are the perfect counterbalance to human overpopulation. I guess that’s why some urban cities try to retain as many of them as possible. I remember visiting Ann Arbor when my family drove through Michigan on our trip from Ontario to Chicago. Having trees in its name, it’s no wonder that Ann Arbor sought to retain as much of the natural landscape while simultaneously growing and expanding to the heights that it’s at today. There are an abundance of trees even in the downtown areas of the city. When I left my family’s community in Brampton and moved close to Lake Ontario in east Toronto, I was impressed by the trees and natural life in the city more than anything else. There are a plethora of city parks that are perfect for discreetly smoking from a cannabis vaporizer of some sort. However, you have to understand that this is not legal in the city of Toronto if you are following the rules regarding public cannabis use. It’s prohibited in most public places, including parks and hiking trails. If I use a cannabis vape pen in public, I try to be as discreet as possible to respect Canadian laws.
