Deciduous Trees

Deciduous trees are trees that drop their leaves for part of the year. They are found in temperate and tropical climates all over the world. Deciduous trees have broad flat leaves that catch a lot of light and require a great amount of water. In some cases, leaf loss coincides with winter Рnamely in temperate or polar climates when there is less sunlight for the process of photosynthesis.
