DECIDUOUS VS EVERGREEN
There are two types of trees and shrubs- deciduous and evergreen. Deciduous species will drop their leaves in the fall and winter. They will regrow their leaves in the spring. A few common deciduous trees in Arizona include Ash, Elm, and Red Push Pistache, which puts on a colorful show of red and orange leaves before they drop.
Evergreen species, as their name suggests, are green and leafy all year-round. Some evergreen trees in our area are Oak, Eucalyptus, and African Sumac. These and other evergreen varieties will remain green through the fall and winter.
