Why do leaves change their color in autumn?

It is considered by some to be the most incredible time of year. As the trees put themselves to bed for the long sleep of winter, gorgeous colors vibrantly encircle the end of summer. With thousands upon thousands of annual visitors all hoping to achieve a breathtaking view of the beautiful nature renaissance, The Great Smoky Mountains floods. Everything starts with photosynthesis. Typically, leaves generate their vivid green hues through the constant production of chlorophyll from spring through summer into early fall. Chlorophyll is the key component in the ability of a plant to turn sunlight into glucose, which in turn feeds the trees, as we have all learned in 5th grade science. The leaves are saturated with many millions of these chlorophyll cells, ultimately making them appear green to the eye. src: smokymountains.com

Why are leaves falling?

In the profound 'intelligence' that it exudes, the beauty of nature is sometimes found. To get through the harsh, freezing temperatures of winter, perennials, which include trees, must protect themselves. If trees did not shed their leaves, they would certainly freeze their soft vegetation during winter time, damaging the tree and, no doubt, killing it.

Trees slowly close the veins that carry water and nutrients to and from the leaves with a layer of new cells that form at the base of the leaf stem, protecting the limbs and body of the tree, in order to cope with the grueling winter temperatures. Water and nutrients no longer flow to and fro from the leaf once the process of new cell creation is complete-this allows the leaf to die and weaken at the stem, eventually falling gracefully to the ground.

What happens to those leaves that have fallen?

Among other things, the Earth is great at recycling. The Earth wastes very little, whether through the water cycle, or the slow process of decomposing plants and trees back into the rich soil.

They begin to break down when leaves fall to the ground and eventually create a rich humus on the forest floor that absorbs dew and rainfall. This sponge-rich nutrient acts as a continuous source of nutrients and water for trees and plants, helping in the next spring season to promote life and plant health.

It is not hard to conclude that while the falling of the leaves protects the trees through winter, without the rich layer of dead leaves through the warm spring and summer months, it is likely that trees would not survive as well. In this way, year after year, the natural cycle of trees gives itself health and sustainability.
