I like to position it as, "if you ask your stat software for a line, you will get a line, no matter what your data looks like."

I would usually prefer the overlaid lines, but your cycle plots seem to better support the all-5-doubling message. Partly because of the steeper slopes and partly because the direct comparisons are removed (no more focus on corn fighting with soybeans).

I thought that might be interesting with the lines connected the other way so that each survey year is a curve, and here's my rough try (accidentally using the opposite color order).

Very nice treatment. I don't see the colors in the NYC data. Is there another source? I was trying but they have different colors. Eg, zelkova is "yellow, russet, bronze, dark red and purple". Btw, they have Norway maple as "a good, uniform yellow".

Good point. Usually the extra labels help get over the row association, but the C++/C coincidence make it worse instead.
