Yes, but many varieties cast "heavy shade" around here.
Get a grove or forest of them, and you have a large dark "curtain" blocking out the already-weak, northern sun.
Plus as a garderner/plant enthusiast, even at a glance I can see how it "grew" over the last few growing seasons more easily,
like reading "rings" from a tree trunk.

*Imho, budding trees in Spring are the prettiest, with lighter, brighter green leaves.

I generally do not like to see the spindly, creepy appearance of trees with no leaves.

However, there was one day in February 2008 when the temperature remained below freezing all day and a thick frost glazed the trees making them appear as if they had been sprayed with silver spray paint and it was a beautiful scene indeed.
