It's not necessarily the density of trees, unless that's something that matters to you, but also about what kinds of trees are in abundance. Personally, I love Atlanta's dense tree canopy, but I also love the tall palms in LA, even though they look like telephone poles from the ground.

I dislike LA's palms as they don't offer shade. Atlanta has way too many trees. As for an answer, I have no idea.

Miami and Key West. Tropical royal palms with coconut palms, date palms, etc.. It's like you're in paradise!

I must say I love the live oaks in Houston, but I find the tree cover to be a little scrubby.

Savannah is also one of my favorites. The streets are lined with live oaks dripping with spanish moss. It's haunting.

I'm from Austin/ central Texas and jealous of the trees Houston has. We have some nice trees but they're mostly central and not the tall growth widespread like Houston and north of it.
