Conifers vs. Deciduous
All trees in Canada can be distinguished as being a conifer or deciduous tree. Conifers are often called evergreens or needle-leaved trees (although there always exceptions). Conifers are also known as softwoods. Deciduous trees are often called broadleaf trees because most shed their leaves in autumn. Deciduous trees are also known as hardwoods.
