It won’t last forever. As winter brings its cooler temperatures, some trees protect themselves with a layer of new cells that form at the base of the leaf stem by gradually closing the veins that carry water and nutrients from the leaves.
Eventually, the colorful leaves fall to the ground. But as spring comes, so do a new batch of leaves.
