Do tree’s make people more democratic?



This is my weird observation of the day, which I consider to be highly weird given the fact that I am currently living in Afghanistan right now and far removed from daily life/news etc and even further removed from America news (except for John Oliver), but as soon as I saw this map of every tree in America – my brain immediately mapped out what states were conservative and democratic. After a bit of research I still think this is far from reality but at first glance it does look like trees do have an impact.
