I am an amatuer naturalist with more than an average knowledge of
plants.  Someone recently asked me how trees should properly be
classified.  My answer was by leaf types or possibly as gymnosperms or
angiosperms. This person thought that trees should be classified as
either deciduous or evergreen.  However, I wasn't comfortable with that
description.  Can anyone help me?
