Oak Stem Galls

Rising Bulletgalls

Rough oak bulletgalls are rising from oak stems in Ohio accompanied by their entourage of bodyguards. The galls are found on oaks in the white oak group with burr (Quercus macrocarpa) and swamp white oak (Q. bicolor) most commonly affected. The "mature" galls are commonly covered in black sooty mold.
