Individual types of trees, or species and cultivated varieties (cultivars), have different requirements for water, light, nutrients, and soil conditions.

General: Native in scattered mountainous areas in the interior West, including Utah. Slow growing and very long-lived (over 4,000 years old) on dry, tough sites. Shade intolerant. Landscape Use: Seldom used but should be more often; can be found at nurseries; very slow-growing; nice dark green color and interesting, sometimes contorted form; needs little or no supplemental water once established. Zones 5-7.

Most broadleaves found in northern climates, like Utah's, are deciduous. However, many examples of evergreen broadleaves occur in the extreme southern portion of Utah, such as the native shrub live oak (Quercus turbinella). Most conifers have persistent or evergreen leaves. Sometimes a tree's leaves will die in autumn but will remain on the branch through most of the winter, as with many of the oaks. Moreover, a portion of the older leaves of some evergreen conifers turn color and are lost each fall, causing some people to erroneously think the trees are sick or dying.
