All trees lose their leaves or needles. Deciduous trees shed all their leaves at once, whereas Evergreens shed some of their leaves throughout the year, but always retain some leaves at any time, so the tree is always green, evergreen. There are many evergreen types of tree.

Deciduousness is an adaptation to the occurrence of cold or dry seasons. In areas of the world where it does not get very cold or dry, moderate or warm temperate zones and wet tropical zones, most trees are evergreen.

Conifers (trees with cones like pines, spruces and firs) and other gymnosperms can tolerate cold better than broadleaved trees, so they tend to be the main evergreen where temperatures get very cold.

Some examples of evergreens are:
  • Conifers
  • Eucalypts
  • Rhododendron
  • Mangrove
  • Southern Magnolia (magnolia grandiflora).
  • Any Southern Hemisphere beech

Evergreens normally don't lose all their leaves in the winter they only lose 1/3 of them as compared to deciduous trees which lose all their leaves. Evergreens are trees such as pines, spruces, cedars, etc.

An evergreen. Strictly it does lose it leaves, gradually through age, though it is not as obvious because they don't all change at once.
