This all happens in photosynthesis. During the course of day in sunlight, the leaves absorb carbon dioxide from air holes present in them called stomata. The carbon dioxide is utilized to obtain energy with sunlight, and water. Then during night time, the trees starts giving of oxygen and water vapor as the waste products.
