Hello fellow gardeners, this a picture of my very old viburnum tree and as you can see it's being severely bitten into. I always seem to get this problem on some of the tree. Is it just caterpillars and other pests as I have never really got to the root of the problem? Can anyone also recommend any course of action? Thanks.




I would suggest it is vibernum beetle. My V. tinus gets it every year !!!
