Japanese Beetle Damage
I recently had a 3" Green Spire Linden planted in my yard. Before I knew it, Japanese Beetles skeletonized nearly all the leaves. There are a dozen leaves left which are still green. Will the tree re-foliate? Because the tree is new, I am continuing to water it every other day, but it looks pretty sad.
Thank you for your advice--it is very informative. As I said the tree has been transplanted less than three weeks ago. I will continue to monitor it. It has just a few leaves left and they appear to be healthy. As the nursery instructed, I am watering it every other day for 20 minutes. I will be very watchful next year if it survives.
