Let us start by understanding the concept of trees. We want our clients to comprehend what trees they would like to keep or remove. In this article, we will unpack the different types of trees around us and how we are to handle them.

Deciduous Trees

These trees are known as hardwood trees. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some of these leaves have designs that range from a star, heart, and even oval-like figure. One of the most distinguishing features of these trees is their ability to change their leaves in season. These trees are the definition of beauty during the fall. From bright yellow to the deep oranges and reds, these leaves bring out the most characteristics than most.

Types of Deciduous Trees

There are many types of deciduous trees and some of these trees may even be right under our noses. They can range from oaks, maples, elms, and even willows. They have a particular bark smooth yet rough design and help with shading in the summer and provide warmth from the sun through their branches in the winter.

Coniferous Trees

Let us imagine for a minute the Christmas season. A time to hang ornaments and place gifts underneath the Christmas tree. What is interesting about this tree is this: it’s a coniferous tree. These trees are known for their beautiful needle-like leaves and their deep fragrance. They help break the ridged winter breeze and shade from the summer sun. Coniferous trees known as evergreens mean they stay green year-round.

Types of Coniferous Trees

Interestingly enough, the Christmas tree known as a Douglas fir is not a true fir, pine, or spruce (according to National Wildlife Federation). These are just a few of the evergreen trees around us. However, when removing these evergreen trees, clients should stray away from using these for their fireplace.
