True deciduous trees do, but evergreens keep them (hence the name). If it's an evergreen where the leaves have gone brown, I think you may have lost it to the winter cold. One of our Bay Trees got hammered, but I pruned off the brown leafy bits and it's resprouting now.
Any chance of a couple of photos? One of the tree and a closeup of a leaf?
