Are there any neighborhoods in Orange County that have homes with large lots on big tree lined streets?

There's obviously mansions on large lots in exclusive neighborhoods like Newport Beach but I mean a normal non-gated neighborhood. I'm thinking along the lines of the suburbs of cities in the East and Midwest or that look like San Marino in LA county but less expensive.

Here's a list of what I could come up with off the top of my head:

Anaheim, downtown (around Pearson Park and points north up to North St)
Anaheim, West St between La Palma Ave and Lincoln Ave
Anaheim, zips 92807 and 92808 (Anaheim Hills)
Fullerton, north of Chapman/Malvern Ave; too many to list individually but Golden Hill northwest of downtown is a good start; downtown has some streets like this as well.
Orange--Cambridge St; pretty much its entire length through the city though the area between Taft and Meats on the far north end is less like this.
Orange--Old Towne (around the circle, especially northeast and southeast of it)
Orange--points east of Cambridge St but west of Tustin St and between Chapman and Katella; vibes vary but probably the best examples are the neighborhoods immediately northwest of Tustin/Chapman intersection--think Shattuck Pl, etc) There are some south of Chapman/east of Cambridge/west of Tustin as well.

This is just for starters. Explore.

Santa Ana easily has the best ones in the County. Historic neighborhoods with character and dense tree canopies. Neighborhoods like French Park, Wilshire Square, Park Santiago, Floral Park, West Floral Park, Washington Square, Eastside (small homes though).

Probably one of the coolest blocks in the County is Victoria Drive in Santa Ana. Massive homes that remind me of the east coast.

This is exactly what I was picturing. Beautiful! Why couldn't they build these kind of streets in more affluent cities instead of those peach colored track homes on small lots that still cost over $1M?

As one of those developers.... it's because in today's market, we really can't make money by building on large lots like in Santa Ana. There are ways to make your neighborhoods feel more organic, but a lot of developers don't care about doing that, which is obvious in most of South OC.

Yeah, totally forgot about Floral Park. Awesome streets. Spent a number of glorious days walking around there and in West Floral Park.

Don't forget about Park Santiago (Santa Ana). Lots aren't quite as big but definitely tree-lined streets.

Land cost and trees take a long time to grow. Those locations with lovely tree lined streets once weren't as the trees were a LOT smaller when the trees were first planted.

True enough. But better seeing a neighborhood mature into those locations discussed than having the trees trucked in fully grown or nearly fully grown. Irvinerenter would know about locations in Irvine like that. I worked in one off Barranca Pkwy near Technology, and you just KNOW those Ficus trees did not start as saplings there. Very disconcerting effect. I realize that is not a residential area, but still would creep me out a little bit. Felt like a movie set.
