Galls on trees are caused by insects

-A A +A

Tree Talk, Joanna Angle

 While walking to the mailbox one sunny morning, I saw odd-looking spheres hanging from one of the young white oaks. 

About the size of golf balls, they were white with a few brown spots and fuzzy.

Several days later I saw more on another tree. Having no idea what they were, I made a note to ask our S.C. Forestry Commission Project Forester Roy Boyd to take a look on his upcoming visit.

Roy immediately said he thought they were “galls” caused by wasps.
