Does it look like a jello squid? Are you sure its in a fir tree and not a cedar tree? Are there in apples near by?

It could be the fungus that is part 1 of Cedar-Apple Rust:

Hi sherry2557, Welcome!

Can you upload a photo, showing the growth? I wonder if it might be some type of Cedar Apple Rust? Check the photos near the bottom of this page for comparison to the growth on your trees: http://www.missouribotanicalga...

yes, it looks like the last picture on the information you sent--and it might be a cedar!!! No apples nearby; we have lived here for 10+ years and this is the first time I have seen this. THANK YOU!!!!
