    I raised this pair of Bald Cypress from seedlings. The moss on the soil kind of volunteered itself. In the last year two of these branching stick like growths have appeared. Are they some type of fruiting body of the moss? Can't say I have ever noticed this type of growth on any moss beds I have come across.

    Sort of. The thick parts on the top are the spore packets.

    Here's a page on moss reproduction - now that you recognize it, I'm betting you'll start to see them quite often when you look at mosses.
