All kinds of fruit grow on trees.  Some of the most popular fruits that grow on trees are apples, oranges, bananas, peaches, pears and plums.

Many animals make their home in a tree or among the tree tops. Trees make a great shelter from weather and help protect animals from dangerous predators. Some animals that live in trees are birds, frogs, squirrels, koalas, monkeys and snakes.

Most trees are either deciduous, pronounced DEE-SID-YOU-US, or conifers. Most deciduous trees change color and lose their leaves in the fall. Conifers are also called evergreens because they keep their leaves and color all year long.
