Believe it or not, these pine trees are located right in the middle of the city of Tallahassee. They surround a house on one of the busiest streets in town. The house is practically hidden from view while just across the street is a busy shopping area that includes the biggest mall in town and behind it are office buildings.
The people who live in that house are very lucky!
(except for the busy mall part)
Is it part of a park or private? Looks like a nice place for thinking away from the noise.
You know these look like they were planted by Meade Paper Company. In rows like they are.
Urban green space;wish there was more of it.
I love those old pines. My neighborhood used to be a pine forest, so we've still got quite a few in our yard. It's nice to see that some are still surviving in the urban landscape though. Hope it doesn't change!
Jim--I'm sure it is a private yard. It's been like that for years.
Halcyon--I love the pines too, except when a hurricane is blowing through. They scare me the way they sway in high winds!
Looks like a great place for a picnic, a good book and a nap.
Thanks for telling me about your Ash Wednesday. Isn't it great that we share common customs? We are definitely one in Christ! Have a blessed Lent.
Its lovely, Lois. The way the trees are all in a row makes me think they were planted a long time ago as a pine forest used for lumber. Pine lumber has always been a big business in Floria.
Surely a patch of woods that the city hasn't been able to buy yet? A piney shot! heheheee
It looks very nice. But they are, as you say, frightening in hurricanes and they do take a certain amount of work - trimming and sometimes cutting down when they get too thick.
People in your city is really lucky for so beautiful scenery just at the centre!I like a lot pine trees, they are huge! :)
Lois, this is one of the things I love most about Tallahassee. There is so much beautiful green space there, reminds me a bit of Austin in that regard (although your trees are MUCH taller) But I swear my car still has pine needles in it from our last trip there - and that was 6 years ago! St. George is one of my favorite places too. Now that I think about it, I'd better quit blogging about it lol. Kathy
We have some pine trees on the border of the city proper, but nothing central like this. I hope they take care of it, it's really beautiful.
Nothing wrong with a little urban forestry!
A nice pine plantation and I like the photo - its all about the light!

Looks the property owners have the best of both the city and the forest.
Very cool. I I used to live on five acres that had once been a Christmas tree farm. All the trees were in perfect rows both ways. Great shot Lois.
It looks very serene and beautiful - someone is very lucky to live there!
Really amazing. Is it a perserved grove or one planted around the house? Nice place for an afternoon walk.
It is set out like a pine plantation. So good that it has not been razed over the years.
Are you talking about G.Square as the busy mall across the street? How did I totally miss this...
That's quite unique to see a forest in the city. A nice place to meander.
Galena--this house is on the corner of Park and Magnolia. I took the picture from the street running behind it and in front of the Lottery building.
Isn't it great to have a forest in the middle of a city? Gladly it also (and still!) happens here where I live.
It does look like you are deep in an isolated forest!
