I have a river birch that has several leaves with reddish pink splotches on them. It doesnt rub off and I am wondering if the tree is diseased or being eaten by an insect. The splotches almost feel grainy. Thanks, Brent

Sounds like mite damage. The splotches may turn into galls. I don?t think there?s anything you need to do other than to rake up the fallen leaves.
