My QTH in FL is in a sub-tropical forest environment where most of the  trees 
keep their leaves all year long and there have sap running the year  round.  
My 15 meter Yagi stack is 33/66/99/132 feet high and is about 50  feet from a 
sub-tropical forest which is about 80 feet tall.  I have never  felt it had 
any effect on the antennas' effectiveness.  The forest is  located in the 
direction of EU through South America.  No numbers to put  out, just my gut feeling.
