Please allow this whimsical observation from a native Fort Worthian. I guess back in the Depression dust bowl days, Fort Worthians emulated Oklahomans and Kansans in planting trees...to block that devastating wind, of course. Now the trees have grown so tall that they block the view of much of our city. The effect is that some of the new building developments are hidden. This notion sounds crazy, but anyone driving a car around town can notice this, if he or she is observant (or view John's skyline photo on this website with a different perspective).
I call Fort Worth a "hidden city." Maybe that has contributed to our inconspicuous image in the past. Funny, but if all the trees were cut down, you'd probably be astounded by the number and size of Fort Worth's buildings.
Of course FW isn't the only city hidden by trees. The further east of Dallas you go on I-20 or I-30, the trees start to look bigger. Trees in Mississippi and Tennessee, for example, dwarf our own trees. In my view, one of the most hidden of cities is Vicksburg.
