Plum Tree

judi4407 added on September 4, 2011 | Answered

Plum tree did not produce or hold what litte fruit on tree to maturity. Leaves are turning brown with holes and some are skeltonized. I think it was tent worms that engulfed one whole branch and have seen Japanese beetles. There is also an area on a large branch that looks like there is sap coming out of it. I just want to get my tree back to good health, if possible. Thanks for any information you can give me. Judi

Japanese beetles will do the damage you describe. This article will help with getting the Japanese beetles under control:

I would also get the tree on a regular spray schedual for pests and fungus. This article will help you with that:
