Many of us have become familiar with the idea of a wind chill factor.
This affects trees as much as it does us, so finding trees that can withstand icy blasts is important, not least because the soil in such spots is also often very cold or even frozen, leaving the tree to struggle for moisture from the ground as it loses extra moisture through its leaves.
Thankfully a good selection of evergreens and many deciduous trees come to our rescue.
