Evergreen forest in winter

An evergreen tree is a plant that has foliage that remains green and functional through more than one growing season, unlike deciduous trees that shed their leaves during certain seasons. Evergreen trees include most species of conifers, such as pine, spruce, and fir, as well as some broadleaf plants, such as live oak, holly, and eucalyptus. Evergreen trees are common in tropical rainforests, warm temperate climates, and frost-free regions. The term evergreen also refers to something that retains its freshness, interest, or popularity over time.
