What kind of spider is this? Found it crawling on my Valencia orange tree. I'm hoping it's protecting my tree from pests, but I recently learned some spiders also are vegetarians.

Hi, this is a jumping spider. I don’t know if it’s protecting your tree, but it eats insects.

I’ve read that there is only one herbivorous species of spider. It isn’t this one.
