Evergreen is a term that applies to conifers as well as some flowering trees which keep their leaves year-round. It should be noted that there are some conifers that are deciduous – they lose their leaves every year.
A common question that arises is, “What is wrong with my evergreen, it is losing it’s leaves?” Typically, people notice that the interior leaves or needles on their evergreen turn brown and fall off. These are the older needles (the newest needles are on the outside of the tree) and these fall off after one to several years, depending on the type of tree. This is normal, since the newer needles shade out the older and as the interior needles age, they lose their ability to photosynthesize.
