In order to print the leaf nodes of binary tree, we'll use the following algorithm:

1) If given node is null then return
2) If both left and right nodes are null, it means its leaf node, so print its value.
3) Recursively visit the left and right subtree.

This logic is same is recursive in order traversal (see Introduction to Algorithms), but instead of just printing the node value after left and right subtree traversals, we also check to see if the current node is a leaf node or not nd then print the node value. If both left and right child of a node are null then it's a leaf node.

Here is the code to print all leaf nodes of binary tree recursively:

public static void printLeafNodes(TreeNode node) {
    // base case
    if (node == null) {

    if (node.left == null && node.right == null) {
      System.out.printf("%d ", node.value);


You can see that we are printing the value of leaf and then calling the same method again for left and right subtree to print all leafs recursively. The node == null check serves as the base case to stop traversal, a key element of a recursive algorithm. If you don't have a base case then your program will never terminate and eventually die with StackOverFlowError.
