Christina Koomen, with the best comment I’ve received on “Urban trees reveal income inequality”.

If nothing else, this study of the distribution of trees in affluent vs. non-affluent areas underscores the need to better plan for and support green space in all urban sectors. Yes, there are exceptions to this correlation, and yes, there can be challenges, as noted in the other comments. But none of that makes the goal of equitable green space improvements any less worthwhile.

She gets it.
