Chlorophyll Breaks Down. But in the fall, because of changes in the length of daylight and changes in temperature, the leaves stop their food-making process. The chlorophyll breaks down, the green color disappears, and the yellow to orange colorsbecome visible and give the leaves part of their fall splendor.
