How can evergreen trees really stay green all year long? Doesn’t that require a lot of energy and nutrients for their needles to never die?

    Most of the reason that evergreens stay green all year round is because they conserve water much better. The shape of the evergreen leaves allow the trees to conserve more water. The leaves are also covered with a waxy film, which helps conserve the water it takes in. Additionally, when evergreen trees do drop leaves, the leaves are so filled with nutrients, and those nutrients re-enter into the soil for the tree to absorb again.
