Surely 'There is just one brown leaf in the old tree' should also be a valid translation

Just should be accepted, but "in the tree" is weird, as it implies it is inside the tree and doesn't make much sense. Leaves grow ON trees.

Good that we have "on" now as a translation rather than the odd "in"
