We love the evergreen trees.  Our backyard teems with local "suburban" wildlife.  Both grey and reddish-brown squirrels frequent our yard, as do many, many varieties of birds.  At one point last winter, we had eight raccoons on our deck scavenging for food.  The wildlife also attracts the pets of our neighbors.  Fortunately, the domesticated hunters seem rarely to be successful.

 This photo was taken in the southwestern corner of the backyard, looking toward the house and deck.  We have only a couple of deciduous trees in our yard, but nearly fifty evergreens.
