I believe its an insect "cacoon". They get inside the leaf somehow, and affect the vascular system, and it turns into that.

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

If you brought that into your warm house there will be thousands of baby insects in the morning!!



Actually I have no idea

If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.

I think it's actually from a wasp that lays its eggs inside the leaf.

Re: What is it??

I have always heard them called oak apples.............it is from a wasp

"Most people miss opportunity because it comes dressed in overalls, and looks like hard work"

Re: What is it??


Thanks for the giggles and info..Oak wasp gall seems to be the correct ID. I never came accross one before at that state of maturity and hadn't a clue as to what it was and after a google search on your answers it became obvious what it was....over the hill and still learnin'
