We have a nice river birch in our back yard that we have successfully treated annually to prevent/minimize problems with birch leaf miners.

But this year, we seem to have a new problem. Many of the leaves are crinkled up -- they almost look like ridged potato chips. I think this may be the result of some sort of insect laying eggs in/on the leaves -- I just don't know what kind of insect, or what to do to get rid of them.

Can anyone offer info or suggestions?

TIA.

I don't recognize the problem, but I'd take a sample to your local extension agent or city arborist. Some diseases are regional, so what you get there may not occur in other parts of the country.
