It's a very contagious fungus and deadly for junipers. A product of spring wet season, fruit trees and certain species of juniper, not all. But if you find one with branches infected, stay away. Guys had to burn their trees just to get rid of it from their garden. Evil or Very Mad

Oh, now. It's not THAT bad. Infected branches should be cut away and destroyed, so it may well screw up the tree's design, but if it is fatal it is slow. In the late winter or early spring a heavy spray with lime sulfur or other copper-based fungicide will go a long way toward preventing it in the spring and early summer -- that and keeping your juniper well away from apple trees -- on your tables or in the neighborhood.

Cees, i didn't want it to sound sooo... deadly, fatal... What Jim said is true, but it is something you want to keep an eye on. Since you were asking for advice on a juni that you wanted to collect - i wouldn't if you have other junipers and fruit trees around in your garden.
I come from an area where apple, cherry, pear and many others are a must in a garden so i keep them well apart. ... This fungus is slow, but can be very persistent...year after year.
just for your consideration.
