How to bake a geometry node animation?

I have a tree animation but it is too heavy for procedural generation.
I want to bake and loop it
But I don’t know how to basically bake the animation of a geometry node in Blender.

Here is a simplified version of the file, inside there is a sphere for testing looping animations and animation of leaves
untitled2.blend(1.4 MB)

I tried to use the bake node but it doesn’t loop the animation.

Can anyone explain how to properly bake a geometry node animation?

I tried to find it on the Internet (geometry node to mesh animation), (bake geometry node animation) but I only found apply without animations or use the bake node.
