|The tree isn't full grown but it's a good size hickory tree.We have them growing all over our property and we really do enjoy them and the wild life they attract.|
This one i have noticed has been attacked.I don't even know how to describe it.So here's my picture show of leaves i removed from the tree.
I think i have them in order from beginning to end of the "bug's" life on the leaves.
Here is a leaf that seems to be the beginning.When i broke it open i don't see where there is a bug inside.
the underside of the leaf start's with the line through the leaf and then busts through the front of the leaf.
then other leaves looked like this
A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!
