All the leaves have fallen off the trees because the council have turned the thermostat down.
In the economic downturn everyone has to cut corners here and there. I'm going to knit a jumper for the tree so that it doesn't get too chilly. Also, someone, probably the farmer, has left the tree outside in the rain and its skin has gone wrinkly. Time to rub it down with some butter or something.
There's also a Robin in the tree that has been discarded from a xmas card obviously to save money. Litter louts are everywhere these days.
