Strange Star-Like Growths on Evergreen Tree
I recently moved to a new home with established trees, including an evergreen that I noted had brown orb-like galls attached to some of its branches. Well, today I noticed these galls have opened up into orange star anemones all over the tree. These things don't look like anything I've ever seen before and I don't know if they're part of the tree or what. Please advise.

Sounds like a gall of some kind. Perhaps this link will help with identifying it: http://www.extension.umn.edu/gardeninfo/diagnostics/evergreen/juniper/branchesgrowths.html
