Grass and Trees

You don't have to turn Whiterun into a veritable forest...but you could...

Mod Suggestions

I’m going to let you in on a secret: I love lots (quantity, variety, lushness) of grass and trees (*whispered) even in Whiterun! I know that this is a controversial opinion and if I were to post my radical ideas on Reddit, I would receive plenty of “But it’s a plain! There aren’t supposed to be trees!” and “But you could be getting way more FPS without all that vegetation!”. To these I would respond, “I know and I don’t care”. If you are like me, there are mods below for us to get lost in, but I have also included lots of…less intense…options for those that don’t want quite the FPS hit, or just are going for a different aesthetic.
