Balls On My Tree Branches

Anonymous added on May 31, 2011 | Answered

Not sure what kind of tree I have, but there are balls forming around the branches of my tree and I am picking up leaves where the forming balls have been. Do you know what this is and how I can get rid of them? I don't want to lose my tree.
