I dreamed a while back of anti-deciduous trees, they put on leaves in fall for winter to block the cold wind, lost them in spring so the cool summer breezes came through.
If anyone comes up with these, I want some

We have live oaks in Texas. They drop all their leaves for a very short period in early spring, but have full green cover during winter. Of course, they immediately leaf out again. Many people think they're evergreens. Of course, by the time summer comes we're desperate for any shade we can get. There is no such thing as cool summer breeze here.

The air on my property is always moving, I'm kinda on a ridge. In summer it's just enough to keep the sweat dried off, it's nice But when it gets cold, it bites. I'd love anti-deciduous trees I'm probably going to "settle" for low speed wind generators, and water pumps.
