The energy from the sun is harnessed by chlorophyll in the cells of leaves. The function of the leaf is to capture and transform this energy to usable form for the plant itself and for all other life forms on our planet. The by-product of this process is Oxygen.

Because trees are large and cover acres of land with a filtered netting of leaves, they are absolutely essential in maintaining our subsistence on this planet.

For more about the work of leaves, read "The Life of a Leaf" by Steven Vogel.
