Hi all,
Looking for some help please.
I had 2 forest pansy trees since last year and both were constantly chewed to bits (leaves eaten) frequently.
Now I have another redbud (rising sun) and all 3 of these redbuds are being decimated by pests.

I look closely and can see multiple tiny very fine webs woven between all branches on all of them.
But aside from the leaves getting rapidly eaten I can’t see any sign of insects.
Please see photos attached of leaf damage.

Its alarming how quickly they destroy the new leaves.
