Types of Trees
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     How many different kinds of trees can you think of? You noticed, of course, that they don't all look alike. Some trees are very tall and others are not; some trees start their branches from the ground while others don't even begin until they reach the height of a two-story house. How about the shapes of the leaves? Some trees even have needles instead of leaves.
 
2     All those differences help scientists to organize trees into several groups. Trees, of course, are plants. They are the biggest plants in the world. They never stop growing as long as they live! Many flowers and crops come and go with the seasons, but trees live year after year!
 
3     There are two large groups of trees that are common in most places. They are needle-leaved trees, also called conifers, and broad-leaved trees. The needles on some trees are their leaves even though they don't look like regular flat leaves. Most needle-leaved trees keep their leaves through the winter. They shed, but they keep growing new needles at the same time. This is why they always look green and are called evergreens.
