Rather than expend energy to protect these fragile organs, trees shed leaves to conserve resources. Nov 05, In the warm seasons, leaves use sunlight, water, and air to make the tree’s food, in a process called photosynthesis. In that process, the tree loses a lot of water through tiny holes in the leaves. In winter, the tree does not get enough water to replace what it would lose through the leaves.
Mar 29, Leaves fall from trees because the tree begins to prepare itself for the winter season.
Trees seal the spots where the leaves are attached, cutting off water to the leaves. The leaves then change color and fall from the tree.
