Just wondering if anyone knows about oak galls. Especially "gouty" oak galls (little black porous balls that grow on oak limbs). Alot of trees in our area have been heavily hit by gypsy moths and now all the sudden these galls are showing up on alot of oaks. I estimated that at my work alone there's close to 40-50 oaks that have em on a 200acre lot. I also have a few at my house startin to grow em. It's really wiping out the oaks bad. They start to drop there bark from the tops down and over the past yr or so they've died completely. Lucky for me the boss let's me drop em and haul em away as they die. Heck i dropped 3 of em today! But it sure seems like it's taking a toll on the woods. Even the state woods are being affected pretty bad. Is there anything we can do do prevent this? The state did all they could for the gypsy moth control ( a bit too late ). It just seems that after the gypsy moths rob the tree of leaves one or two yrs in a row, these galls show up and finish the job.
