Notes:

Walking with pets in the park this a.m. and spotted this growth on a branch of either a slash pine or loblolly pine. Looks like corn on the cob on the pine. What is this?

    I googled it…
    The closest I could find is “western rust gall”.
    I have it at my house too…

    certainly a rust disease…I lean toward fusiform rust
