Broad-leaved tree

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Broadleaf refers to trees or other plants which have broad leaves. Specifically, it means not grasses (not Poaceae). A broadleaf plant is a member of the Magnoliopsida, better known as the dicots.

It is an angiosperm, meaning it has flat leaves and produces seeds inside fruits.[1]
