Looks like 2 separate issues- caterpillar damage and some kind of leaf scorch either from freeze damage or phytotoxic reaction to oil or something else.

Pictures are always a bit difficult for me- I'm used to diagnosing with the tree in front of me.

harvestman, thx for reply. I'll hit the trees with BT again.. other than BT I haven't sprayed yet this year so not sure what other damage might be except maybe freeze damage as suggested. will spray with "once and done" in about 2 days when we're supposed to have a couple of rain free days.

as always thx for your invaluable advice. not getting much fruit anyway this year due to untimely cold weather.

Once and d. will stick through quite a bit of rain- at least an inch and probably more if it's got an hour or 2 to set.

interesting. I'll get the soil tested again. Prior to planting 4 years ago I had the soil tested and it was actually above normal for potassium. thx. for suggestion.
