Evergreen Tree Uses and Advantages

Evergreen Tree uses

Evergreen trees stay green all year round, unlike deciduous trees that shed their leaves during winter or in the dry season. They have a unique characteristic; they do not shed all their foliage simultaneously. When the old foliage's drop, new ones return to replace the old ones.

Most of these trees are coniferous; evergreen conifers have cones rather than leaves or needles. Examples of the trees include false cypress, red cedar, arborvitae, spruce, and hemlock. The evergreen properties of the trees have numerous benefits.

Evergreen trees such as Magnolia grandiflora, "Exmouth," and Magnolia grandiflora "St Marys" are excellent for screening purposes. When planted in a row, these trees can enhance a place's view or create privacy for the inhabitants. The ever-present foliage blocks the view of pedestrians or traffic when placed outside residences or offices. In addition, their leaves and branches control or block out noise from the outside, creating a serene environment.

A row of these trees helps block wind, snow, dust, or salt. In residential areas, these trees should be planted on the side that experiences the most substantial wind effects. It increases their effect as windbreakers. Evergreens planted along the road prevent snow and salt from piling on the road. It reduces the risks of slippery roads and maintenance costs, such as snowplowing.

Evergreen conifers are easy to maintain


The cones and needles present in some of them prevent destruction by herbivores. The growth of new foliage all year round assists the trees in conserving energy and nutrients. It is beneficial in areas where the nutrients present in the soil are minimal. The trees provide their mulch when they shed their leaves and reduce the costs required for fertilizers. The cones and needles also increase the pest-resistance nature of the trees.
