Great question! I’m planning on visiting the mountains of North Carolina to see the beautiful orange, reds, and yellows of the tree leaves now that Autumn (Fall) is here. Check out this excellent YouTube video from SciShow Kids that will help you discover why the leaves change color and fall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xk4-6II8l5Q

Excellent question! I had a similar question – In Maine, why do we sometimes have better foliage (brighter colors) some years than in others?

Because they die.

Does the whole tree die or just the leaves?
