Deciduous trees are trees that drop their leaves for part of the year. Common examples of deciduous trees include oak, maple, and hickory trees. These varieties lose their leaves in the fall and re-grow them in spring.
Trees are an important part of landscaping. They add beauty and a sense of structure to any garden, street, commercial property, or public space. Environmentally, they are essential to our survival.
Trees moderate climate by cooling in summer (deflecting sun and heat) and warming in winter (deflecting the wind), thereby reducing energy costs. They improve air quality by removing dust and other particulates from the air. The leaves absorb harmful carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide and give off huge amounts of life-giving oxygen. Trees also absorb sound and provide shelter to birds and other wildlife.
