Alaska has the lowest population density in the United States with 1.264 people for every square mile. But the tree population is another story and this island is a good example of crowding. And in spite of living shoulder to shoulder with other trees, the crime rate is very low: the trees seem to get along well with each other. We should take a lesson from Mother Nature . . .

(Note: South Dakota has the 5th lowest population density with just over 10.6 people per square mile. Highest in the United States? New Jersey with 1,205. Washington, DC has a density of 10,357 people per square mile.)

  1. I was expecting a follow-up comment of the crime rate in SD, NJ & DC!
    I always enjoy your photos…some much more than others of course. Love the photos from Alaska.
