Laurel tree leaf #869771

Asked May 23, 2024, 12:08 PM EDT

The leaves on my Laurel are covered with little projections and are not looking good. Have not seen this before and it is troubling. Can you identify this infestation or disease please?

They are galls and likely will not harm your tree. See these web pags.
