I'm building trees for my shop so we have dense terrain, and I need a base to put the trees on.

What's the ideal size of dense terrain? I was thinking about using a knight's base: 100x160mm

I think thats a good size if the trees are dense and unpassable (ie a wall, not meant to have models in it). If it was terrain designed to have models move through it I would venture to say it should be at least twice that size so you can spread it out enough to make it appear thicker and block LOS while allowing movement.

as long and narrow as possible. Dense cover should be built like a wall. models dont need to be in or near the cover to claim dense, so dense should be built as big and board-covering as it can be to maximise the effect you get for the work you do.
