These terms are used to classify trees based on their leaves and their seed production. A tree is termed deciduous if it loses some of its leaves at some seasons of the year. For most deciduous trees, their leaves are often wider than coniferous trees.

The leaves usually have a different color before they fall during autumn. This happens because the leaves lose their chlorophyll. On the other hand, coniferous trees do not lose their leaves. They are often termed “evergreen” tress. For coniferous trees, seeds are found in the cones. They use cones to spread their seeds. The trees do not lose their colors.

The coniferous trees are also referred to as evergreens. The main difference between the deciduous trees and the coniferous trees are the number of leaves that the deciduous trees lose every year. There are some trees with leaves that will become a different color, especially during autumn. These are deciduous trees.

They would change their leaves’ colors and even lose their leaves during the winter, but the trees are still alive by the time that spring comes. The coniferous plants will have the ability to maintain their leaves and the color of their leaves throughout the year. This explains why they have gotten their name. It will be easy to tell what type of tree you are looking at based on their differences.
