Evergreen trees are the back bone of the winter landscape, adding interest and life. They are excellent plants for specimen or group plantings. When given sufficient room to grow, most will occupy a large area. Some of the taller- growing varieties will give good wind protection when planted on north or west exposures, aiding in energy conservation.
