Wasp like insect

This insect (larger than any bee or wasp I have seen before), was nearly 1m up a pine tree in a pine woodland. It stayed in the same place for over 15minutes. It was black and yellow, body length was about 30mm, from tip of antennae to end of lower yellow/ orange protuberance nearly 50mm. It also had a thin red/black needle like protuberance from a sack on its body that went into the bark of the tree and its body was pulsating. I presume it was laying eggs in the bark.
