I have a 2 year old weeping cherry tree. I have began to notice that some of the leaves curling and am including a picture I took today. The insects are trying to devour it. It is not too dry because we have had soaking rains at least twice a week for 6 weeks. Is it a fungus? And if it is, how do I treat it? Thank you for any info

I'm not sure because I've never seen it but look up peach leaf curl. It's a fungus and there are treatments for it. I don't know how successful they are.

No I haven't seen them but I have been fighting them since I got the tree! I have used liquid Sevin and then just last week I sprayed it with permethrin. Last year it became absolutely covered in what almost looked like a spider web. I posted it on a web site and they said it would not hurt the tree. I am over simplifying what they said but that was the bottom line. That was when I sprayed with liquid Sevin

I suspect its root rot from too much rain this year. Cherries hate wet feet.

If that's what it is, most likely.
