Grymes Hill in Staten Island is very leafy. This first one is a very cool, windy narrow street with total overhead tree coverage:

Todt Hill, Staten Island. Yes, this is New York City!:

I know of some great similar areas in Brooklyn, too, but unfortunately when I checked on the map the street level photos were taken in the winter so the trees are bare and you can't tell the extent of the coverage over the streets.

Many areas of Miami and and the rest of Dade are pretty disappointing in terms of tree covered neighborhoods, especially when considering its location. But most areas have potential to have some of the lushest neighborhoods in the U.S. I say that because Coral Gables is an example of how many areas in South Florida CAN look like.

And this is Coconut Grove, which is a neighborhood in Miami:

There are parts of Coconut Grove that are like a jungle. Parts of the Gables are stunningly beautiful. Many other SFH older neighborhoods are also quite lush but not as famous or visible as The Grove and The Gables. Brickell was also much more lush before Hurricane Wilma.

I agree that the southeast has the best tree coverage in cities. Of places I've lived, Houston has the most trees, and most of them are broad-leaf evergreens, such a live oaks, which are green all winter. When flying over Houston in the winter, it still looks lush and green, unlike northern cities where trees lose their leaves. In the South, people have trees because they truly need them to help them endure the summers. In this sense, Houston feels like a southern city. Rice University (my alma mater, mentioned above) is covered with live oaks. Many streets in Houston are lined with live oaks, which was a law at one time, passed by the city in an effort to help deal with flood water and swamps. The live oak trees are very helpful with controlling swamps.

Um...Houston IS a southern city, in most respects.

The single most urban densest and top 5 urban densest cities don't have much tree cover in the immediate downtown area? You don't say.

Of course newer cities are going to have more incorporated. Their urban density comes nowhere near the former, and their infrastructure is much newer.

Sacramento, CA, is actually full of trees, and is referred to as the City of Trees. So much so, that you forget it's flat. The trees give the illusion of a hillier city. Keeps it cooler in the summer.

Here's an aerial photo of the capital building downtown, showing the entire downtown district covered in trees:

And the city from a neighborhood farther away from downtown:
