Climate & landscape is pretty much the same...Atlanta has hills, but Houston has palm trees & is coastal.

Both cities are very forested.

Houston is actually really green with a bunch of trees. Not as many as Atlanta, but there are still a lot of them. Houston has everything Atlanta has as far as landscape goes (Plus a the ocean). The climate is a bit more extreme in Houston, but they're pretty similar.

^ If you don't like extreme heat, I wouldn't advise Atlanta either. Houston's probably a little worse, but Atlanta can be downright brutal as well. It averages daytime highs in the summer well into the 90s, plus lots of humidity.
