Translation of defoliate in Spanish:
- The adults and young feed on saltcedar leaves, repeatedly defoliating the tree and depriving it of nutrients.
- One thousand caterpillars eating leaves might completely defoliate a tree in two weeks, whereas that same number of aphids would hardly be noted.
- Frosts at any time in the growing season can partially or totally defoliate vines, but they typically remove the outermost leaf layers of a thick canopy.
