French term or phrase: Tremble
leaves of our trees
dianna
English translation:trembler
Explanation:
"trembler" would be a good answer if you are talking about the fact that the leaves are moving. So it would be something like:
"les feuilles de nos arbres tremblent"

If you are talking about a tree
"tremble" is "aspen" in english.
