Leaves on deciduous trees change color in the fall due to chemical changes that occur because of shorter, colder days. 

The process of photosynthesis takes place in leaf cells that contain the green pigment chlorophyll. 

Leaves also contain yellow and orange pigments such as carotene. Most of the year those colors are hidden by the preponderance of chlorophyll. But come fall, leaves stop producing food and conserve energy for the long cold winter. The chlorophyll breaks down, and the yellowish colors become visible.
