The Great Plains of North American stretch across the western regions of the continent from Mexico to Canada, conjuring up images of wagon trains and pioneers plodding across a treeless grassland. Viewed as a semi-arid land, nearly all the Great Plains, east of the Rockies to the Mississippi River, receive less than 24 inches of rainfall a year. Most of the trees tend to cluster along river valleys and floodplains, with a few distinctive exceptions in South Dakota’s Black Hills and the central Texas Sabine Uplift region.
