[NAFEX] sudden apricot death

Here's an interesting occurence:

I had an apricot x plum of some kind and during a couple years when we 
had very dry spring weather, the squirrels learned to eat all of the 
leaves off it except for the very ends of the branches.  The tree ended 
up looking like a trimmed poodle.  Even for a year or two afterwards, it 
still had most of its leaves on the ends of the branches. This year it 
was dead in the spring.  Guess it couldn't recover.

I have learned to live trap the offending squirrels and relocate them, 
since only certain ones learned to eat those leaves.  It actually took a 
long time to figure out that it was squirrels.  Imagine looking out and 
seeing most of the leaves gone off of one of your trees except for 
little tufts at the end!
