Evergreens and Conifers
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Every fall, leaves on the trees turn colors - bright yellow, red, orange, and finally, brown. By the time it gets cold, all the leaves are gone. These trees are deciduous trees. But there are some trees that not only stay green, they also keep their leaves all winter! Those trees are called evergreens because they stay green year-round.
 
2     How do evergreens stay green all year? They are able to grow new leaves before shedding the old ones! Some evergreens keep the same leaves through the winter and into the summer. Some trees are able to keep the same leaves for several years before they drop off!
 
3     There are many kinds of evergreen trees. Some trees have leaves that are tougher and more leathery than others. Some evergreens have needle-shaped leaves. Needles have less surface area than big flat leaves and can resist changes in temperature and humidity more easily.
