I think this is a milkweed plant. It has gotten huge and it has a stem that is more like a woody bush. Plus that, there are all of these eggs on it. Can you please tell me the name of the plant? Also, could you please tell me what I should do about all of the eggs on it? Thank you very much.

    Milkweed has opposite leaves. The leaves in the photograph are alternate. Without flowers it’s hard to tell for certain. I’m wondering if it might be a type of willow (Salix)? The eggs could be some type of leaf galls? According to sources, they are harmless. Again, I’m only speculating. Flowers are needed for a confirmed ID. When it blooms and you still don’t know, please resubmit with photo of flowers. Best wishes!
