I have a terrible time with tent caterpillars eating this entire tree every summer. The tree has gotten tall enough that I can't reach the caterpillar "tents". I'm not a sprayer. The tree continues to grow but it doesn't bloom very much. Anyone have any organic solutions? Thx.

We had been told years ago, when we were also having trouble in our Pecan trees, that if you use something(with a very long handle Smiling ) to break open the "tents", then birds could get to them, and feast on the little buggers.
