I'm sorry, but I don't recognize the split cherry tree story. Perhaps if you post a brand-new question featuring the title and author, someone else can help you. If possible, please use the story title as the topic. Thanks!

This is not an idiom but a simile. It may be a rather hackneyed simile because it has been used too often, but it is not an idiom. You do not indicate whether you are referring to a specific literary work, so it is not possible to explain what caused "him" to shake like a leaf in the wind. He could have been frightened, or he could have been very cold. I suppose he might have been suffering from the flu or some other illness.
