What Are Deciduous Trees?

Answer

A deciduous tree is a tree that sheds off its leaves in the drier part of the year and bears new fresh leaves in the wet season. The tree does this in order to conserve water for other important physiological functions. The opposite of a deciduous tree is an annual or evergreen tree which bears leaves all year round.
