A collection of witches' brooms
A collection of witches' brooms
Witches' brooms are an abnormal dense cluster of twigs growing from a central source, easiest to see when (as here) there are no leaves on the tree. They are a symptom of stresses, both biological and environmental, such as infection that is formed on plants as a result of attack by parasites, including fungi such as Taphrina tugida.
