Its all about the trees. It's ALWAYS about the trees.

'Trees….can do more than anything else and provide the biggest bang for the buck if you do them right."

Allan B.Jacobs, talking about what makes streets great in his book called, funnily enough, "Great Streets" (The MIT Press)

I think of it this way: take the trees out of a street which has everything else going for it and it will become a horrible place. Fill a street, which otherwise has nothing going for it, with big trees and it will become a delightful place.
