The Piedmont is tree-filled, but nearly all the trees go bare in winter, making for a dead landscape. The other two regions have large amounts of greenery that is seen year-round.

Miami is very green and lush year-round, but doing the Summer/Spring, Atlanta feels more "forested." You can go to some areas in Miami and look down a couple of blocks very clear, in the Piedmont region that's not happening, there's more tree cover by miles.

True, but, unfortunately, many of those trees in Atlanta go bare in winter, causing it to go down many notches in this thread. In contrast, the greenery in Miami is maintained year-round, so it is a winner.

If all of Atlanta's trees were evergreen, it would win the thread.

the dominant tree in atlanta is pine so can't say it is that stark in the winter.

Atlanta was the first to come to my mind, but Seattle may be greener with the year-round evergreens, ivy and moss. I'm pretty sure Atlanta has the largest tree coverage of any major city, but they still have autumn and the leaves do fall leaving them not so green during the winter months.

I still say Philadelphia/New York and other NE cities. This Biomass map shows that the NE is more densely covered than the SE and also much more than most of the west.

The NE as a region is very green; not so much the actual cities of Philly and NYC though, at least compared to a couple others.
