A leopard comes down a tree after feeding on its prey. In the forests, they have to compete with both the tigers and the wild dogs and hence they use the safety of the trees to both rest and feed. Leopards are the most adaptable predators and can make themselves at home in varied kinds of habitats. Being smaller than the tiger, they are also a lot more agile.
