get more realistic landscape for 3D ArcGIS WebScene

In my webscene, I am using the default Esri elevation layer:


WorldElevation3D/Terrain3D (ImageServer) 



Although the terrain does show variation in the land surface, trees and Buildings remain flat, as shown in the picture






I'd like to have at least the trees/bushes be more realistic without having to manually create multiple 3D features (which would be very impractical for showing scenes word-wide) in a Globe Scene to represent realistic terrain.


Also, I am using Portal for ArcGIS WebScenes, and I don't see a way to exaggerate the ground layer.


Is there imagery, or world-wide 3D data available to accomplish what I want?
