Trees Deciduous
"Deciduous" means falling off at maturity or tending to fall off and is typically used
in reference to trees or shrubs that lose their leaves seasonally and to the shedding of
other plant structures such as petals after flowering or fruit when ripe. In a more
specific sense deciduous means the dropping of a part that is no longer needed, or
falling away after its purpose is finished. In plants it is the result of natural processes.
