The answer should be, "There are still many green leaves on the tree."

Prepositions are tricky. The leaves are on the tree but the squirrel is in the tree.

If we don´t report it, they will not correct it. I reported it.

"On" the tree is better

Never known leaves to be in the tree as they grow out for the sunlight

On the tree not in the tree

Leaves grow on a tree, not in it.

The translators are still preferring 'in' which is not correct. Please keep reporting this issue
