Green leaves do not burn easily while dry leaves catch fire easily . Explain.

Green leaves contain moisture (water) and due to presence of moisture it is difficult for burning to take place properly whereas Dry leaves do not have water (that is why they are dry) and thus they catch fire and so burn easily.

Maybe because chlorophyll is present in green leaves. And chlorophyll takes CO2 and gives out O2. Fire takes place when O2 is present but in green leaves it is present in very less quantity.
