My daughter and boyfriend picked this for me on mt. Hood. Was wondering if you could tell me what it is and how to care for it.

Here in northeast Oregon we have a person with a number of Australian willow trees that have started to have yellow leaves on specific branches only this past year. The trees are about 15 years old and are irrigated near a lawn from an irrigation ditch next to the house. The owner is very concerned about the trees, she has been pruning off the affected branches but is worried about whatever is causing it spreading to the other trees. She hasn't observed any webs or obvious insect differences on the tree this year, but did note that this was the first year she had a lawn care service come out to spray the lawn (she didn't know what with) near the trees and wondered if that might affect them.
I have been looking into it and I'm pretty stumped by the information out there about Australian willows specifically, though I did notice they are classified USDA zone 9-11 (we are about zone 6 here) and wonder if this past winter did not do them any help.
Admittedly, I am not a tree expert and this has me very confused. The owner has a sample in to the OSU plant pathology lab, but is very anxious to prune or spray something to save her trees. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
Today I found a swarm of several thousand bugs eating my spinach, chard and beet tops. They are strong fliers and mover very fast. I sprayed them with permethrin and it seems like they are all dead for now. They just defoliate your plants over night. The bugs are gray and about 3/4 inch long. See the attached picture. Can you help me?

are spider mites a problem in our area?
I have lost several Twisted Willow trees to the Clear-Winged Moth larvae recently. I need to replace them with quick growing shade trees. I like Aspens, but I don't know if they are suited for the hot summers in Boardman, OR. Any other ideas? I don't want a very tall tree, because of the proximity to my house and other structures (30') with the high winds we get here. My neighbor has Austrees, but I prefer a single trunk. About the Clear Winged Moth, how do I protect the rest of my trees from these? They are not noticable until it's too late.
I live in Irrigon, where can I have my dial type gage tested. Thanks
