I consider most of whats around Dallas to be related to scrub brush like a mesquite tree which is basically just an overgrown bush that grows on prairies.

Houston for the most part stays green year round while Dallas turns brown in the fall & winter. Houston has tall evergreen pine trees, Dallas has short evergreen cedar trees.

IMO Houston has more landscape diversity out of the two cities & can be broken down into specific regions. Sprawling from the piney woods on the north side, to the coastal grasslands on the southside, to the Katy Prairie on the west side. Bayous & swampland can be found on the east side of town where the Houston Ship Channel spills into Galveston Bay which then opens out into the Gulf.
