Plum tree leaf problem

Hi,
I have a an 8 year old purple plum tree that has never had a problem with it's leaves. However. today I noticed a large amopunt of leaves espacially on the top half of the tree seem to being eaten by simething. The leaves have a lace like appearence with a lot of small holes in each.
Does anyone know what the problem is and if I should spray the tree and with what?
Thank you very much.
George M.

Japanese beetles do that to mine every year. If you don't mind messing with poisen, Sevin works pretty well until the first rain after application. Merit worked into the soil in the drip zone is somewhat effective, but it's too late to do that now.

If it is Japanese Beetle attack, you can also use malathion or pyrethrins. To keep the spray working longer after a rain, you can add a 'sticker' to the spray. Hope these critters don't find my Stanley Plum tree.
