Its probably a bacterial bloom from the driftwood by the looks of it (as some others have also remarked). There may have been a nutrient spike resulting from the plants getting uprooted.

My suggestions won't be very different from what the rest have suggested.
Remove what you can manually and take out the driftwood and wash it or boil it if you can, periodic water changes will help, shorten the photo period.

If you still have issues with these blooms or other types of Algae investing in a UV sterilizer might help.
