Webs on a Sweet Gum Tree

I have 28 beautiful sweet gum trees. They are getting these web looking things. I either burn them or cut them out of the tree. How can I prevent these bugs or what ever it is from destroying my trees?

Willing to bet you have tent caterpillars, which get nasty, make webbings, eat or destroy the leaves like crazy. Most have to burn or cut away the areas they infest. We just had a great crop of them in western MN. My little granddaughter picked them and jarred them, till we found what they were. Each area has suggestions of attack. Contact your local extension service for advice.
