The white worms you are seeing may be bag worms - a little white worm that does a lot of damage (killing a tree) if not treated quickly with chemicals.

White worms can cause all kinds of problems for trees. If you already have them, you need to go to the store and buy some chemicals as soon as possible. The worms will eat through the roots and weaken the tree until eventually it dies and falls to the ground.

White worms are nasty to your trees. They can replicate and infest trees by making tents that envelop tree branches and kill them! Inside these tents, the worms will eat and devour the tree bark. First they attack the trunk and spread throughout it. Once they burrow into the bark it is all over.
