“I noticed a mass across the street, and then at Violet LaPlante Park in Alderbrook, where I took its picture,” Jan Mitchell wrote, describing the picture shown. The “pod” is 8 to 10 inches long. Close to her house, the same web-like structures are in an apple tree and an alder tree.
“Then, on our way home from a trip to Portland, I saw literally hundreds of them, mostly on deciduous trees,” she explained. “Might one of your readers educate us on what this is? There is sort of a elongated oval of something more dense within the ‘web.’ I don’t recall seeing them before in my 24 years in Oregon.”
Anyone know what these things are?
