Willow leaves. Woodcut artwork of three leaves from a willow tree (Salix sp.). Each leaf consists of a central midrib, with veins branching off on either side of it. A stem (far left) connects the leaf to the tree. The leaves of willow trees are deciduous (they fall from the tree in the autumn), and can be recognised by their finely serrated edges. Leaves are used by plants to carry out photosynthesis, and to store food and water.
