Topic: Woody Decay Fungi: Recognition of the Most Common Species in Our Area
As arborists, we commonly observe mushrooms and conks growing on and in close proximity to the trees we care for. We also know that fungal decay is a major cause of tree failure. While some decay fungi make their presence obvious, others are less so or even hidden from direct view. While we are not expected to be professional mycologists, we are expected to be able to identify common decay fungi on sight and formulate management options. We will discuss the most common decay fungi, how to identify them and options for dealing with them.
