The soil under evergreen trees is too acidic to grow plants.

Fact

The reason plants don't grow well under evergreen trees is usually because these large trees suck up all the moisture and nutrients available, leaving very little to support other types of growth. For success beneath evergreens, choose shade- and drought-tolerant plants, water and fertilize regularly and mulch to preserve moisture.
