    Evergreen trees are any trees that don't lose their leaves in all seasons, so this can be anything from coniferous trees to rhododendrons to palm trees. Most, but not all conifers are evergreens.

    Evergreens include species of conifers such as hemlock, blue spruce, red cedar, and white/scots/jack pine.  Not all conifers are evergreen such as the larch.

    Many coniferous trees (cone-seeded plants) like pines, red cedar, blue spruce are evergreen trees but not all coniferous are evergreen. Larch is coniferous but not  evergreen since it looses its leaves in autumn and called a deciduous tree.
    Tropical rain forest trees in Dipterocarpaceae family like Dryobalanops, Hopea, Shorea are non coniferous-evergreen trees.
