Arizona is known for its vast stretches of desert in its southern half, and dense pine forests in the north. Arizona’s population began booming in the 1960s with the growth and development of retirement communities. Many moved to Arizona because of allergy and other respiratory ailments, which were relieved by the clean dry air. As major cities like Phoenix and Tucson grew and new arrivals insisted on growing lawns and planting trees native to other areas, the pollen and smog in Arizona became as problematic as in any developed metropolis. Today the state’s economy is diverse, with health care, transportation and government the main sectors. Copper mining, cotton growing, cattle, citrus produce and tourism were once the dominating economic forces in Arizona, and today copper mining continues to play a significant role in Arizona’s economy.
