The tree looks like a Cupressus, I grew C. cashmeriana from seed and it has cones like that but without the funky orange stuff which looks like a fungus.

The fungus resembles Gymnosporangium clavariiforme ..

We're on the same track, Janet.

I finally found something that's similar as well - Gymnosporangium speciosum

http://www.forestryimages.org/browse/detail.cfm?imgnum=14281... commonly found on Junipers. So it's a fruiting body, but not of that tree. The tree is just the host plant.

Thanks for your help. Smiling
