In my experience Las Vegas and Phoenix arent covered in trees the way other cities are but they still have lots of trees.

Good question. My guess is New York City since trees along streets [other than residential] are absent. Probably Chicago & most large East Coast/Midwest cities as well.

I wish there were more trees in Los Angeles but at least tree planting is done throughout the city [though palm trees are not planted as much since they don't provide enough shade].

SF too, could use lots more trees along sidewalks.

Most cities probably feel the same way.

Chicago has a decent amount of trees for being such an urban place. Granted we're no PNW city.

Santa Fe is up high, near pines, aspens, etc. Its not nearly as devoid of trees as places like Vegas, Phoenix, etc. And even then, places like Vegas and PHX have palo verdes, palms of different varieties, etc, but hardly any shade trees (which is what youd EXPECT places that hot to have--if they can survive).

Las Vegas immediately came to my mind. Even before Phoenix.
