Anywhere where there are a good number of native coast live oaks will give a nice woodsy feeling. For example anywhere on the north slope of the Hollywood Hills / Santa Monica Mountains. And as noted the canyons, Eagle rock, Pasadena, etc.

Our last home in So California was in Glendora (east part of town) just off Foothill Blvd, our street was very narrow (probably a fire hazard) with only about 10 houses on the street and we were the last house, with trees and greenery next door. You couldn't find anyplace any greener...

Oregon and Nor Cal have a bunch of greenery but they're definitely not East Coast.

There are quite a few places with tree lined streets but they're expensive. San Marino, San Dimas, Brentwood, Westwood, Beverly Hills, Malibu, Palisades.

Near as I can tell after several years in SoCal, lush green is the result of irrigation. It's like one poster mentioned, it's brown here half of the year.

Compared to some of the beachs in S. Fla. (Say from Hobe Sound south) it does not have that same tropical look and feel. Except where it's been manufactured.

It is strange here in that respect. You can sometimes see the moisture in the air and it doesn't rain. Somehow a desert that abutts the ocean.
