    Deciduous trees that shed their leaves during the winter do produce less oxygen, although some of them still emit oxygen from green bark or twigs. Evergreen trees continue to produce oxygen throughout the winter. And, yes, deciduous trees absorb less carbon dioxide without leaves in winter. During these cold months, carbon dioxide levels rise in the hemisphere where it is winter.
