Garmin products of 60CSX or later vintage (OR's, DK's, CO's, and the new 78s and 62s) should all do pretty well under trees. 

Don't expect quality performance from any GPSr in canyons.  Above is a sample of what my OR300 did in Zion Canyon.  I did a side by side test with a 60CSX and it was no better.
