Can my tree survive the catipillars?

14 years ago

I have a flowering crabapple tree that has been ravished by catipillars. It looks like the majority of the leaves have been eaten. I love this tree as it is beautiful in the spring and provides privacy when we use our pool. It's about 10 years old. It gets infested every year, but this is the worst. Is there a good chance it will survive? If it does, what's the best way to protect it next year? I just saw the first of the Japanese beetles yesterday. I hope they don't get it next! Also, when will the catipillars be done for the year?
