Many of em will tell you that the leaves are green because of the chlorophyll in em, its true ! But the chlorophyll in the leaves can absorb a large amount of wavelengths or colours, the green chlorophyll in leaves can absorb all the colours except for green colour ! Amazing isnt it , so it repels the green wavelength and absorbs all others, thats why the leaves are green kiddo :).

Great question. Leaves are green due to a pigment called chlorophyll. Another reason leaves appear green is due to the fact that when sunlight hits these leaves all colors but green are absorbed, thus leading our eyes to see "green".
