Does anyone know what this is growing on my tree. This is a live oak and it keeps getting worse. Picture attached.

Here is a link to Texas A&M that describes what your tree seems to have.

Thanks!

Someone had mentioned that it could be wasps but I didn't believe them since I have never seen any flying around the tree. If they don't hurt it I guess I will just leave them alone and take no action. The tree just looks gaudy!!
Thank you for your help!!
