White web-like mess in the trees.... what is it?

I was driving down I95 over the weekend and I started noticing that along side the highway heading south there were a lot of trees with a white web like mess in them. Does anyone know what it is? I'm sure it some sort of bug, but I would have thought that we were kind of late in the year for nesting.
