What The Mushrooms Growing On Your Trees Are Really Trying To Tell You
If you notice mushrooms growing on your tree, it's a cause for concern. This usually signals a fungal infection, hinting that the tree might be rotting from within or at its roots.
While mushrooms on a branch might mean the tree can be saved by removing that branch, mushrooms at the base often suggest deeper issues and might necessitate cutting down the tree.
In either scenario, don't attempt to remove these mushrooms by yourself, as doing so could release spores that might spread to other trees in the vicinity and infect them as well.
Instead, consult an arborist who can identify the specific fungus type, assess the extent of internal decay using a Resistograph, and recommend the best course of action.
