The first thing we can determine about the term shrub is that its
etymological origin is in Latin. Specifically, it is derived from "arbustum",
which can be translated as "tree planting". A word that, in turn, comes from the
verb "arbustare", which is synonymous with "planting trees", and which comes
from the noun "arbos", which is equivalent to "tree".
Shrub is a noun that refers to a type of plant characterized
by having a woody trunk, although not preponderant, which
begins to branch at its base and does not reach a height greater than five
In addition to all the above, we can point out that we can find shrubs both
evergreen and deciduous.
From these characteristics, it is possible to differentiate the bushes from
the trees, which have a trunk with a larger diameter, branch
in their upper sector and can measure more than one hundred meters in height.
Beyond these differentiations, the concepts are often
confused, even with others such as shrubs or woody
plants. Also, some shrubs can grow as trees depending on the context.
the ecosystem that presents numerous bushes receives the
name of scrub. Also called shrubs, bushes
can be dangerous for the development of human communities since they catch fire
quite easily due to their characteristics.
The Pittosporum tobira, the paraguayensis Butia and Hibiscus

Regarding its use at a decorative level, we can establish a series of

a decorative level, are attractive. We are referring, for example, to strawberry
trees, pomegranates, cotoneaster...
-Not less relevant is the fact that, when it comes to obtaining certain specific
shades, there is a great variety of shrubs to use. And there are those that have
green leaves, those that have yellow leaves, those that have others that are
-It goes without saying that we also come across another series of bushes that
have the particularity that they are in great demand due to the fact that they
have a really original and attractive shape. This would be the case, for
example, of conifers called dwarfs.
Shrub Energy, on the other hand, was the name of an energy company that George
W. Bush (former President of the United States) founded in 1977. The
name of the company arises from the translation of the word "bush" into
Castilian, since the term means "bush". Some investigators
claim that Arbusto Energy had a close relative of the
terrorist Osama bin Laden among its partners. This fact
generated shock since George W. Bush blamed the al
Qaeda terrorist network (led by Bin Laden) of the
attacks committed on September 11, 2001 on United States
