What are deciduous trees?

Deciduous trees are plants that lose their leaves in a period of the year. In the case of the deciduous trees of the temperate forest the fall of the leaves happens in the autumn (fall). The loss of leaves is a preparation to face the cold months of the winter: roots, stem and branches are more resistant to low temperature and snow than the leaves; without leaves the metabolic rate of the plant is decreased; the decaying fallen leaves help to nourish the soil.
