I picture the foresters and/or monarch biologists suggesting various
native trees, and the city planners nixing each one as either too
expensive, too slow-growing, too unattractive, too short-lived, or too
hard to obtain. 

I picture this because that's what happens out here.  Bah.

I know the coastal area there is a mess with the iceplant and whatever
else... but there isn't anything else that the monarchs can use
besides eucalyptus?
