Node/lumps on Willow tree

Good Morning,

I was at a wildlife preserve a few weeks ago and saw a (what I thought was ... ) willow tree that had blown over. It was still alive but lying horizontally. It had lumps/nodes all over the side facing up while the side facing the ground had none. I'm just curious what they are...I thought maybe galls???? but I don't know much about trees

Thanks so much!!!
