When Is Tree Removal Necessary?
It is well known that a tree should be removed if it is a hazard to people or to property, or if it begins to lean more than usual. However some may not realize that if the trunk has mushrooms or fungus at the bottom might mean it should be removed!
Mushrooms are fungus. Mushrooms growing on trees does not always mean the tree need to be removed. They sometimes grow on dead or decaying wood. It could mean the tree has a root fungus. Mushrooms growing in the yard could also be a concern to tree health.
