We planted the first of several planned western redbuds in a large native plant garden planted last spring on our property in Fair Oaks. It had been doing very well and put out a lot of new growth, but in the last week, something is eating the leaves. It appears to start at the end of the branches and eats the entire leaf, but does not eat the leaf stem and does not affect the branches at all. Anyone have ideas about what might be at work and the best counter-measures?</p>
