Re: UPDATE - Foliage Damage
Yeah, they're called bugs.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16155112


That reminds me. I was buying a lawn product at Lowes or Home Depot last month when I mentioned that my lawn was full of weeds...never had that problem before. I said that it must have been our warm weather.

The clerk said that they got word that, because of the warm weather, bugs will be really bad now. They never died because of the mild winter.

I also read that many squirrels in the northern states usually die during the winter, but this year they didn't. They survived the winter, but will have a difficult time competing for food now.

Re: UPDATE - Foliage Damage
this damage is widespread all over my area.
 Quoting: ~Jay~


I'm in New Jersey. My two large, once full and lovely, River Birch trees showed signs of "damage" before leaves appeared. Hundreds of branches were falling. We had a very mild winter, NO snow and hardly any freezing temps.
I usually stop watering shrubs, trees, and the lawn in November. After that, cold/freezing weather comes, along with the snow. This year it didn't happen. Once I saw the falling branches in early March, I started watering, and the trees have recovered the best they could, but they're practically bare inside.

Also, because there was no cold weather, the weeds in my once beautiful lawn continued to grow through the winter months. Never ever did I see my lawn like that. I've gone through about four large bottles of Weed B Gone so far. The lawn is looking much better now.

I have a feeling I will have a huge water bill this coming summer.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15059606


Colorado here. Same falling branches etc. your describing but we had regular snowfall twice a week it seemed from October through Feb, for the most part temps were freezing point and below 2 snaps in the 'teens.
I'm not saying water isn't the issue in your case or that we have the same thing going on.
Just that our trees are dying not just on our property but all over town there are bare skeletal bough sections and lots of dead fruit trees whithering to an alarming degree I haven't noticed in past years.
I even think maybe it's just me noticing (you know how that is) and might be projecting on something that has always happened but to be honest..yeah. It's happening.

I really appreciate everyone telling us which state or country they live in!

It's because everything started budding in February then froze again in March & April.

there is no possible way a bug could damage a leaf, retard.
 Quoting: 1-2-Follow


Are you serious? Of course bugs can damage leaves. Have you ever seen what aphids can do to a plant or tree - totally detroy them. They suck all the fluids out. there are lots of insects that lay eggs on the underside of leaves and while the eggs are developing they feed off of the plant and kill the leaves - turning them brown, yellow, etc. the leaves then wilt and fall off.

I don't know. Pretty much just looks like leaf blight, black spot, and bugs. But for all different types of trees doing the same thing is kind of strange.

That one looks like a fig tree.....Too much water and too little sun...the USDA did change the planting zones this year for the first time ive ever seen. Im thinking this has something to do with all the crazy weather and plant posts. Everything here is on steroids..the poison ivy is already higher than it was all of last year.

"i don't spray any chems. on my lawn and i couldn't tell you if anyone has nearby."

A perhaps worthless thought here: if growth is lush or unusually lush a tree is going to turn off some leaves competing for sunlight, or tiny stem ding from blowing sand or tear can cut off water/nutrients to tender stems.

Trying to rule out a few common possibilities amid Other glaring evidence.
