The green lawn conspiracy? Hah! It is just us homeowners concerned with how our property looks. To all of those complaining: when you own your own home, let's see if you let your lawn die.

Thats because its factually incorrect TC, trees are better for soil than grasses and shallow-rooted plants. Better still is the combination of both. If you remove the trees you open the soil up to erosion and allow the water table to rise increasing salinity. As for grass producing more oxygen than a similar biomass of trees, I'd be interested to see statistics as I've never heard of that one.
it absorbs more carbon dioxide and creates more oxygen than does a plot of trees the same size.
grass is a good thing,
