The tree's leaves, or foliage, act as its production factories high in the sky. And here, in plain view, are the parts of the tree's reproductive system: its flowers, fruit and seeds. The foliage is also home to the buds – inside them, everything in the canopy gets produced. If you can't see the forest for the trees, imagine how much lies hidden in the foliage!
