Olde Naples: Tree Canopy

I post a lot of photos from Naples, but I haven't shown you much about the residential
neighborhoods in beautiful Olde Naples -- the heart of the city, maybe
ten blocks north and 15 blocks south of Fifth Avenue South.

Today let's look at a few of the tree-lined streets.


 

And, some enterprising entrepreneurs earn their livelihoods showing Olde Naples to tourists.

I do love tree lined streets. We don't have any in my town because hydro crews are always cutting away the branches to protect wires. New subdivisions have underground wiring but the trees are still too small to make a huge impact.

That canopy of trees, esp in the first shot, is a beautiful sight. What a pleasure to be able to live nearby.

Gorgeous shots of the tree-lined streets, Jack! I hope the old homes haven't been replaced with McMansions.

I'm sure you'd be very good at being an enterprising entrepreneur too.

The two top shots are to die for.

Awesome canopy.

Those tree lined streets are beautiful. I would love to wander along and check out the view, but I would skip the Segway.

These trees are a big WOW! I'm not used to seeing branches so long. I think I can thank utility crews for that. Do you know if those top trees are oaks? And are the white-trunked ones in the third shot cypress?? Whatever they are, they're truly gorgeous.

So gorgeous Jack! One of the best things about older neighborhoods are the established trees.

I like the tree canopy over the street. Also some of those grand old trees look so magnificent.
