Percentage of Urban Tree Cover in the European Capitals Mapped

Oslo, the capital of Norway, has the largest number of trees and may be considered the greenest capital in Europe. However, Oslo is known for its strong commitment to environmental sustainability and has implemented various initiatives to increase green spaces and promote a greener lifestyle.

Oslo had a comprehensive tree planting program and has set a goal to plant 100,000 new trees within the city by 2021. The city also has a focus on reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality, with plans to become carbon neutral by 2030. Oslo has invested in public transportation, pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, and has restricted car access in certain areas of the city center to reduce pollution and promote sustainable transportation.

Furthermore, Oslo has several large parks and recreational areas, such as the famous Vigeland Park and the nearby Nordmarka forest, which provide ample green spaces for its residents and visitors to enjoy. These efforts, among others, have earned Oslo recognition as an environmentally friendly city and a leader in sustainable urban development. However, it's important to note that rankings and designations for the "greenest" or "most environmentally friendly" city can vary depending on criteria and methodologies used by different sources.

They are solitary animals, often found near bodies of water, and are herbivores that feed on leaves, bark, twigs, and aquatic vegetation. Despite their size, moose are strong swimmers and can run up to 35 miles per hour. The moose population in North America is shrinking swiftly. This decrease has been correlated to the opening of roadways and landscapes into this animal's north range.   In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada and Alaska, the northern part of New England and New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale.    In 2014-2015, the North American moo
