I camped in a site that burnt about 10-15 years ago. Almost all the trees' diameter, were about baseball bat sized at eye-level and where way to springy to hang from. I finally found a spot but, it wasn't an optimal hang and it required a bit of bushwhacking to get to.

Yes. North of 50*. All black spruce up there and sometimes cannot find two safe trees.
The road to success is always under construction.
The only areas I've had with no real options are spots that have recently burned or been cut. There are some great camping spots, but you can't hang on a 1" diameter tree.
There are spots in south Texas where it is nothing but brush, bushes that are chest high and impossible to walk through... I have generally though just kept walking until I find some more mature mesquite trees to hang from... It is time like this though that I am reminded why I carry the extra long tree straps that I do, if I only carried 5' straps like some people I would be in for a very bad night...
Live, Laugh, Love, if that doesn't work. Load, Aim and Fire, repeat as necessary...
