I'm guessing people in the hood don't give a shit about having trees in their front yard. Owner occupants would want to landscape their front yard.

Sorry we didnt have Napoleon and Haussman to plan SF

Otoh this is a strange apples-to-oranges comparison. Paris is an ancient city with population estimates that go back 2 millenia.

Also, Paris doesnt have 2.5 million people, it has 2.2 million people. SF doesnt have 750,000 people, it has 884,000 people.

And Paris has 700,000 less people now than it did at it's peak while SF has never been larger.

Around the time SF was founded, Paris already had 30x more people.

1850
Paris 1,053,000
San Francisco 34,000

1920
Paris 2,906,000<--Paris' peak population
San Francisco 506,000

The culprit is probably Dutch Elm disease. Most likely all cities in the Midwest and Northeast were affected by the disease, which was brought over by some European beetle:
