This is because you are using alpha blended materials, which are notoriously difficult to sort. This is explained in the 3D rendering limitations documentation.

Switch to alpha tested materials instead by enabling Alpha Scissor in the leaves material. This will prevent translucency from showing up, but it’s the only way to fully solve transparency sorting issues. Alternatively, if you’re using the GLES3 renderer, you can enable Opaque Prepass, but this has a cost and may not always work as expected.
