We recently moved and there is a tree with strange growth all over its bark. I'm not sure exactly what type of tree it is but I know the growth isn't supposed to be there.

I don't know what kind of tree it is, but Hercules Club has similar bark (but not leaves).

I contacted the extension agent and he said this was a sweet gum tree and the formations on the bark are normal and called alligator skin.
