Trees preparing for their winter hibernation..

As part of this, they begin to shut down their growth process. Shedding leaves helps them conserve water and energy. In fact, before they shed those leaves, trees re-absorb all the nutrients in the leaves and store them in the other parts of the tree.

However, the roots continue to do their work and absorb required water and nutrients as need be.
