    Why does a leaf stay green after it is picked and pressed. I pressed one oak leaf last fall and it is still green.

    I would like to know why when you pick some leaves and then press them while they are green why do they stay green?

    There are trees in my area, big leaved, that lose most of their leaves and yet, after storms and high winds, many of the leaves still are on the trees.  Some trees are completely bare except for about 20/30 leaves, another like tree still has about 50% of its leaves, a large tree in my back yard lost about 75% of its leaves but the other remain, WHY?? 
      I lived in Virginia for some time and we had what I call a Spring Fall.  Trees kept their leaves, although dead/dried up, all winter and in the Spring they would fall as new leaves came in.  Here in Michigan most trees are bare but many large leaved, still are, lets say, 75% bare and 25% still holding their leaves. Some of the large leaved trees turn orange and the one large one in my back yard are yellow.  Once it snows these leaves will come down but why the long period between the others fall and not the rest?

    Thank you

    Very informative.  I’ve always wondered what causes the leaves to change colors and never knew it was from chemicals in the leaves and trees.

    Fantastic information I never realized.

    I’m a poet and was writing about a tree turning orange,  but the leaves under the branches were clinging to the trunk
    remaining green as if,  like us,  not wanting to die

    Now I see they go to another life,  as perhaps we do,but they have helped the trees in winter
    and the earth from which new plants grow.
