Deciduous refers to perennial trees and shrubs that belong to different families and classes. Characteristic of deciduous is the formation of well-developed leaves, unlike conifers, in which the leaves are similar to needles.
A tree is typically a stem that branches at a certain height above the ground. In contrast, shrubs branch immediately or very close to the soil, so they do not have a single trunk. The stem, branches and roots form secondary wood and bark. The branches of the stem (branches) form the crown of the tree. The trees grow significantly in height, while the bushes remain relatively low.
