Greensboro NC is filled with tree-shaded streets, especially the central to northwest side.

New Orleans actually lost so much of its tree cover from Hurricane Betsy, that the average summer temperature has gone up by a couple of degrees, owing to the reduction in shaded ground.

Tallahassee, Florida, has 78 miles of designated "canopy roads", which are completely shaded from one curb to the other.

I'm laughing at some of the cities being mentioned like NYC and Philly.

Why? NYC is more than Manhattan. Even Manhattan neighborhoods have trees.

Ever been to Staten Island? Seems not.

Compared to many cities, NYC and Philly do not have a lot of trees. Chicago is a city that's both dense and has a lot of tree covered neighborhoods.

As far as major cities go, Atlanta, DC, Seattle, Portland, Charlotte. Houston I think is underrated in it's lushness. Those Savannah pics look extremely similar to what you could get around Rice University.

Found a pic.

Most of Northwest Philly could go toe to toe with anywhere; It's surrounded by parkland. Even parts of Center City have tall old trees covering across the street.
