Question: Are trees considered monocots or dicots?
Quick Answer: Taxonomists classify trees as dicots.
Why Are Trees Considered Dicots?
All trees are dicots because when they first emerge, they have two embryonic leaves that nourish them until they become established. Other features that help define trees as dicots include having a wood-producing stalk covered by a protective bark layer, roots that radiate from a central core, and leaf veins that radiate throughout their leaves.
