I have to say that I prefer deciduous trees and shrubs for landscaping instead of evergreen trees and shrubs, at least in Massachusetts. I used to work in Alaska quite a bit, and loved the Fairbanks area because it reminded me of New England, with a lot of deciduous trees in and around the city, and they were a native species, not imported. I generally find fir trees to be too visually smothering, too thick. Deciduous trees have more color nuances and are more multi-dimensional and transparent, even in the summer. Just my subjective personal taste.
