Check out this article from the Oregonian that cites a Forest Service study that shows that big trees help lower crime rates. What's more likely? The fact that bigger trees exist in the more affluent neighborhoods. I would guess that money and not trees has more to do with the study's results. For example, I bet you'd also find that backyard swimming pools correlate to lower crime as well. Just my guess.
