Pretty much any Southern city is very dense with trees outside the immediate downtown area. That's because Southerners have long prized the shade that trees afford from the brutal summer sun.

Not completely. The Houston area would look something a lot more similar to Atlanta today had the developers not chopped down all the pine trees (with a few exceptions)

doesn't Sacramento have to most? (per capita)

When I visited the locals seemed pretty adamant about that.

There is not a consistent canopy of tree cover in the urban core of Seattle like you find in Atlanta, but as you leave the downtown/central neighborhoods area, you are surrounded by forests and stands of trees.

Ive heard from a few places that Atlanta has the most trees out of any major city.

I guess the obvious one would be the largest city in land area where trees grow densely.
