During the summer leaves give off enormous quantities of water. Some of the water that flows up a tree from the roots is used for making food. Most of the rest evaporates through millions of tiny holes on the surface of the leaves. In the winter (in much of North America) a tree's water supply is cut off in winter to a great extent. Then the trees can't release gallons of water into the air. They would need more water than they could get from the frozen ground. So they "lock up the pipes" by shedding their leaves. But suppose the leaves didn't evaporate water easily? Then there would be no problem about water, and the leaves could stay on the trees. That's exactly what happens with "evergreen" trees. Pines and firs and hemlocks have narrow, needlelike leaves with a thick, waxy outer covering. This prevents evaporation of water. So — their leaves remain on the trees for several years. When the leaves fall, new ones grow at the same time, and the branches never look bare. That's why these trees are called "evergreens."
