Several of the cherries in the woodland were affected by it. I didn't receive any identifications, unfortunately.
Thank you Amadan, very interesting.I have no clue!
Could it just be solidifying sap following damage to the plant?
the question I was hoping to resolve was why the cherries, and no other trees, were moribund and producing it - in several cases from more than one point on the tree.
I'm pretty sure it wasn't related to honey fungus, which I would recognise, I wondered about bacteria or other fungi like phytophora.
Cherries do tend to "bleed" sap a little though not usually on this scale
I have seen this on cherry many times, sap.
