Oak Leaf Galls

I was helping our maintenance guy at church today trim an oak tree. As I was holding the ladder and he was cutting, I kept seeing these colorful little balls.

Great close up. We have an oak tree in the garden but never see the Galls like this only when they are brown in the Autumn.

That is fascinating!! Thanks for the link to tamu.edu! I've never seen them to the extent yours are, but now that I read about them, I may have seen them on other trees.
Did you get all the pruning done?
