tree or evergreen trees
In the simplest sense, tsin means tree in Navajo. It serves as a general term for both evergreen trees, like the juniper and pine trees, and trees that are affected by seasonal changes. Specific trees are denoted by certain descriptive terms, in much the same fashion as previous words-of-the-day. Namely, their Navajo names inherit unique names based largely upon obvious distinctions unique to particular trees.
