Minix,
If possible..........return to this site or customer's home during the early evening or in the early morning and look at the insect that is feeding on these leaves. Cooler times or when the outside heated temperatures are low is the best time to investigate for the vector.
Could be Leaf Skeletonizers, Tent Caterpillars,etc. Beetles and Inchworms do the most damage to ornamental trees in the urban setting. The beetles will feed at night while the caterpillar will feed early when the temps are lower.

Because it was supposed to help you realize that an answer is not possible with a couple of pics of chewed leaves. Find the culprit in action, snap a pic, then we can talk.

Minix, please give us some more information. What trees? Did this just happen now? Or before? All of a sudden? Over how long a period? And once again, other than the leaves being chewed, are there other signs that the trees are being "killed" ? Trying to help but you aren't helping us help you.

In the last picture you show a bag worm.

you can check at dusk as someone said.

Or you can pinch the bag worm from the bottom and it will pop out the top, it should look like a caterpillar, either way remove and destroy the sacks, they contain 500-1000 eggs for NEXT YEAR.

Google bag worms for more info......good luck.

Mike

Mike, You are late to the party. The OP for some reason didn't get anything out of our attempt to answer and has closed off the discussion as you can read above.
