What is a good shade tree for my area? One that doesn't drop all it's leaves in the fall?

Quercus engelmannii (Mesa Oak, Engelmann Oak,or Pasadena Oak) is an evergreen tree, spreading to 50 fit high and often twice as wide. Its thick leathery green leaves are up to 2 inches long and oval to cylindrical; round-tipped acorns are to 1-? inches long. It does best with monthly deep soakings in the warm season, but don?t keep it constantly moist. It grows well in your area and provides terrific shade.
