It appears to be very immature in its growth stages. Our native deciduous forests have several caterpillars that can defoliate the trees. Please drop a couple of them off in a small paper bag at either office. Please note on the form what species of trees or shrubs they are on. That will help us as we determine if it a nuisance or a threat to the tree.
