An Evergreen Tree is coniferous, meaning it retains its green leaves throughout the year. They do drop some leaves, but it happens gradually over time instead of all at once. Depending on the species, some constantly grow new leaves to replace the ones that have shed, while in others, the leaves live for 30 years before shedding. The Evergreen Tree can adapt to its climate to ensure its survival, but its ideal home is in an acidic soil where nutrients are accessible. The shelter provided by older, larger evergreens often helps younger trees to persist in the winter months. Plant this tree anywhere there is ample space!
