    know what this is??? I live in South Jersey and I have a few of them on my trees in the backyard.
    I do not ever remember seeing these before. :confused3 Maybe I just never paid attention.
    I was going to take it off and step on it but I was skeered of what might come out of it!:eek::laughing:

    Thanks.

    Oh well. A friend helped me out. It is an "Oak gall". aka wasp nest.

    I never saw them at this stage, I usually see them when they have reached a brown color and get all shriveled up- I assume that is after the wasps have left the gall.

    They do not harm trees.

    Thanks for the info. If I see one in Cape May, I'll know what it is!
