I think this is the same as one I posted

My post is at:
Several of the cherries in the woodland were affected by it. I didn't receive any identifications, unfortunately.

Honey fungus?

Thank you Amadan, very interesting.I have no clue!

Could it just be solidifying sap following damage to the plant?

I assumed it was sap -

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.
