Reston’s Tree Canopy Shown Off — Reston has a 49 percent urban tree canopy, RA Environmental Resource Supervisor Patricia Greenberg explains in Reston Association’s latest “Reston Today” video dispatch.

Why Reston is ‘One Better Than Ashburn’ — A recent Money magazine list named Reston the 29th-best place to live in America … and nearby Ashburn the 30th. A local blogger compared the communities in a tongue-in-cheek fashion and determined just how the magazine came to the conclusion that Reston is “Ashburn plus one.” [Restonian]

      We should cut all the trees down so we can be more easily surveiled by police!

    • Scott

      Just follow the advice of our former Vice President. Buy a shotgun, go on your deck and fire off a round. No one will bother you!

  • Mike M

    Isn’t Reston beautiful? Yes, many parts.
    Reston’s better than Ashburn. Maybe, in many ways.
    Impressive tree canopy? Sure!

    But you may have noticed Reston is being hurried down a certain path . . .

    • Scott

      Reston is almost Arlington.

      Defeat Cathy Hudgins!
