Evergreen conifers are plants or trees that produce cones to protect their seed and keep their foliage through winter, hence the name evergreen.

The Thuya Arborviatae Snowtip Cedar is one of the dwarf evergreen conifers, growing to a mature size of only seven feet. Its name is derived from is dark green cedar color with white silver tips of new growth. It serves as an excellent accent grown with other evergreen trees and shrubs. It can be mulched with aged bark or similar mulch.
The Balsam Fir is another one of the evergreen conifers that is used a great deal for but not exclusively as Christmas trees. The Balsam Fir is easy to trim and is a good landscape tree. As it is a large growing tree, reaching approximately 60 feet at maturity, even when trimmed, it should be apart from other tress or used in a wooded or forest type landscape. The Balsam Fir has distinctive, sweet smelling scent that pervades the air. The dried needles are often used to create fragrance pillows and other such related items. Mature Balsam Fir trees are harvested for stud wood. Not only used for Christmas trees, Balsam Firs can be trimmed and used in the home yard as evergreens for landscaping. The cone is very small andConifers or softwoods are classed as gymnosperms or plants with naked seeds not enclosed in an ovary. These seed "fruits" are considered more primitive than hardwoods.

Conifers can lose their needles annually but most are evergreen. These trees have needlelike or scalelike foliage and usually renew many leaves annually (but not all every year). The foliage is usually narrow and sharp-pointed or small and scale-like.

Douglas-firs are also one of the evergreen conifers. It is amedium-size to large or very large tree that can grow 40 to 80 feet in height, with a spread of 12 to 20 feet. The leaves are flat and linear evergreen needles, generally resembling those of similar fir trees. The female cones are pendulous, with scales not like other fir trees and are distinctive in having a long three-pointed leaf that protrudes prominently above each scale. The tree can grow in partial shade to full sun and in fertile, moist, well-drained soil, in a location that is protected from high winds. Unfortunately, it is susceptible to cankers, leaf and twig blight, cottony aphids, bark beetle, and scale insects
Another of the evergreen conifers, the Eastern Hemlock is a broad leafed tree that can grow up to 100 feet in height. It has a pyramid-like shape with horizontal to drooping branches. The bark is brown and the needles are short and soft. It will grow in full shade but prefers soil that is rich, moist and well-drained. They can be pruned as small hedges or to serve as screens between home yards. They are also susceptible to a foliage insect that can be treated properly with a special solution.
