Notes:

Please tell me how to treat this fungus on a cedar tree. It is orangish and jelly-like. I suppose it is a rust fungus. My husband cut off the limb that exhibited most of it, but this much is left on the tree. Will this kill the tree eventually? I think it may be a fungus that spreads to apple trees as well. We hope to plant a couple of apple trees in the back yard. Should we just cut down this tree? (We don’t really want to lose it.) There are woods beyond the tree in a back part of our property

    I’ve always heard to take down the tree. That’s as bad as I’ve seen… I would not plant apple trees in that yard. I’ve heard that the apple cedar rust can travel a half mile or so… It’s not going to be a matter of taking out one tree… And being able to plant apples. There are resistant apple varieties available… Otherwise, maybe a nice fruiting pear?
