Looks like that observation, G. effusum. Sending it to a friend who is investigating fungi on red cedar.

There are other Gymnosporangium species.

Check out observation 131046, i think you might need microscopy to id it to species.

Not Gymnosporangium juniperi-virginianae

That grows from a gall on the branches, not the trunk.
