Tree planting in Mountain Center,
Anyone familiar with Mountain Center (elevation 4,518ft)? It's about half way between Palm Springs (elevation 440ft) and Idyllwild (elevation 5345ft). Somehow Idyllwild is really Woodsy, in the middle of a forest, but mountain center is a lot less woodsy, less trees. It's because of climate? or less water?
If someone owns acreage in Mountain Center, is it possible to 'artificially' introduce bunch of trees? What would be the best trees to grow there?
