I have seen an application that tends to almost feather out trees, giving the photo a very fantasy effect.
Does anyone know what this is?

Please give us more details. "Feather out trees" is certainly only one of the things that the tool does and surely not the main feature. A more precise desciption in image editing terms would be e.g. adds a glow to the image or produce glare effects. If you have an image example of what it does it would also help.

Perhaps this application can be found among those listed here

Could it be the fractulis plugin by redfield?

You might be looking for Topaz' plugin Vivacity.
Here is a link with screenshots of the effect you may be looking for.
Hope this helps.

Photoshop offers an Anisotropic option under Filter > Stylize > Diffuse. If you apply it a few times, you get a similar effect, but it is not as sharp as the Vivacity one.

learn a lot.

Harald, I gave Filter>Stylize>Diffuse a try (nice find!) and it's a step in the right direction. Apply some Unsharp Mask afterwards and it further tightens the effect (not too much, or image noise is exaggerated).
But again, the Vivacity plug-in does a better job with much more flexibility and clarity. See my Vivacity results here
