It's a Sixspotted Orbweaver (Araniella displicata). Are you certain that the spider is what's damaging your trees?  I'm no expert, but that seems unusual to me. As you described, Sixspotted Orbweavers do build their webs next to a curled-up leaf and use that location to hide while they wait for prey to get caught in their web.  They also lay their eggs there and the resulting egg sac is located in the curled-up leaf.  But I don't think that they are the cause of the original leaf curling and, as far as I know, Sixspotted Orbweaver spiderlings don't damage trees.  I also don't think that their spiderlings are green.  Do you think it might be possible that the little green, grub-like things you mention could be aphids? Just a thought. Like I said, I'm no expert.

I am no expert on trees, but this looks like a Serviceberry tree. I looked it up in the Trees and Shrubs of NL field guide.

Some people say that Timber Flies are dangerous, some say that they can actually kill those with reactions to them. I was floating on the water one day when i was stung in the left leg. I was unable to walk for several days. Driving a standard shift to get home required a broom handle.
