Characteristics of hardwood forestry plants

Commonly known as hardwoods, leafy seedlings have a wide variety of characteristics, starting with their foliage, which can be deciduous, marcescent or evergreen (depending on whether it falls in the fall or not). Other criteria to check when choosing a particular hardwood species include :
- its sensitivity to frost and/or wind
- resistance to drying out
- its growth habit and silhouette (tall, slender and thin or bushy and bushy)
