Should be asked in the landscape section viewforum.php?f=19 but it may be rats. We have a 1.2m lime tree and a similar sized Meyer lemon tree that gets the buds and some newer leaf growth nipped off by rats. The small ring-tailed possums also love the young leaves of citrus trees so it may be them also. If it was caterpillars you would find them hiding on the underside of leaves.

On ours we have some similar leaves that have been curled to form a tunnel but no caterpillars inside??? So I don't know what that is about plus I've also actually seen rats climbing on the trees.
