We just discovered a round, bright yellow mass on one of
our trees. The mass appeared overnight. It was about 6" round, 1" thick,
and was soft and spongy. We scraped it off the tree and couldn't see any
eggs inside or damage to the tree. What is it?
I couldn't say for sure without seeing it but it MIGHT be a slime mold.
