The leaves on my pecan tree have hard bumps all over them. What could be causing this and should I be alarmed?

Sounds like Pecan leaf phylloxera. Usually not considered a serious pest. Any control measure would need to be made at budbreak as the insects are emerging and prior to them forming the galls.
