Branches seem to have mutated ? Any botanists or horticulture buffs around?

Maybe some kind of insect larvae, cut one open and see if there's a grub inside.

That's just mean, "Leave the grubs alone!!!" (in the voice of that "Leave Brittany alone!!!" guy)

How big are the pictures compared with the diameter of the whole tree? Interesting find.

But they're rich in protein, maybe a new sustainable food resource was discovered.

Grubs, the other white meat.

I agree with the larvae idea. Google "tree galls" and there are different types of images that look similar to yours, although I couldn't find one that looks Exactly like yours.

Not sure where you live, but if you contact The Los Angeles County Arboretum, I'm positive they will tell you what that is. I would post contact information, but the last time I did that, I got into trouble with the MOD Squad 😁

It looks like severe scale disease and I do mean Severe!!!

Yuck 😝

Michigander. And thank you Lol and in my research I discovered this plant is used to make antibiotics for staph infection. Cool beans.

It looks like burl wood to me. Burl is like cancer for a tree, they're malignant growths caused by some type of stress. It usually grows on the trunk or root system but can also grow on branches.

Here's a picture of a branch burl someone has carved into a pipe.
