Why do trees change colors in autumn?

Here comes a question which I often asked myself. why do trees have to change the colors to the leaves, just before dropping them? isn't this a waste of resources on the trees side? why they don't just suck their leaves empty, and then drop them?

Carl Zimmer at the loom has an interesting piece about this. enjoy!
