Christmas Tree

This is a plant picture, which I took at Lampson Falls on February 26th. This tree is a deciduous tree as it keeps its leaves during the winter season. The advantage of keeping its leaves is that it does not have to use energy to grow new ones after the winter season however the disadvantage is that the weight of the snow on top of it may break branches. This tree could also be used for shelter and cover for little animals, as they could hide under it to avoid the risk of predators.
