Deciduous Trees

Deciduous Trees are a type of tree that seasonally sheds their leaves for part of the year—typically in the autumn. As a natural occurring process for conserving water during winter or drought seasons, deciduous trees will often display bright autumn colors as they prepare for shedding their leaves as the production of chlorophyll pigments is decreased. Deciduous trees are commonly found in temperate forest biomes, and mixed subtropical and tropical biomes.

Why do leaves change color in autumn?

Leaves on trees change color in the fall season due to reduced chlorophyll pigment production in preparation for shedding their leaves for the winter. Brighter leaf colors occur in environments where nights are cold and days are shorter.

Why do trees lose their leaves?

Trees shed their leaves to conserve water for either the winter season in temperate climates or for the dry season in tropical and subtropical environments.

American Elm Tree
Dimensioned drawing of an American Elm Tree with measurements for height and canopy width and a person for scale

The American Elm Tree, also known as the white elm or water elm, is a large and hardy deciduous tree species native to eastern North America. Scientifically referred to as Ulmus americana, American Elms are naturally found in rich habitats that include floodplains, streams, swamps, hillsides, uplands, and mountain rivers. Once living for several hundred years, the lifespans of American Elms today are now limited to under 100 years due to Dutch elm disease.

American Elm Trees are notable for their expansive canopies that reach widths of 60’-100’ (18-30 m) and overall heights between 50’-100’ (15-30 m).
