Be Active - A Winter Walk

Shape

Now let’s look at shapes. The shape of evergreen trees and shrubs will vary. Some are like the traditional Christmas tree shape with branches coming out horizontally from low on the trunk all the way up. These trees are conical, but even this shape has a lot of variety within it. Some evergreen trees have tall trunks. Some have an upright way of growing, others can grow very close to the ground such as low growing Juniper. The colour of the leaves will vary tremendously as well, from dark green through to blues, silvers and golds.
