Be Active - A Winter Walk

Trees in winter

During this time of year in the UK, when you are out walking, and looking around you at nature, the main thing to see is the difference between those trees and shrubs which are evergreen and those which are deciduous. The evergreens will keep their leaves, whilst the deciduous will lose them. In our picture of an oak tree through the seasons, you can see the cycle of a deciduous tree.

 

 


You’ll find that many evergreens belong to a family of trees called conifers, and this is a big and varied group.
