Urban Forest

Los Angeles has one of the most tree-filled downtowns; It's more than just palms and elms - here is a great example of a Silk Floss tree. It is the perfect tree for Los Angeles, it gets showy pink flowers (Hollywood stars), pods that look nice on the outside but make a huge hairy mess if you open it up ( LA politics) and it's covered in thorns (LA's aloof people).

How descriptive of you--and apt.
