You didn't identify the tree so I don't know if it's a type that is susceptible to insects or if the holes in the leaves are the result of a disease. Drooping leaves usually indicates a water stress - either too much or too little. Inspect the leaves. If you see insects you can hose them off the leaves. If not, the insects are already gone so no treatment is necessary. Wish I could help more!
