15 Common Mushrooms That Grow On Trees In Your Yard

0 4

One of the uglier mushrooms to find on trees, Chaga fungus (Inonotus obliquus), looks like a dark, crusty, rough bump jutting out from the side of the tree trunk. It tends to grow on birch, ash, elm, and beech trees. In general, a tree has to be damaged in some way for chaga to take hold. Once infected, the fungus can live in the tree for 80 years or more. Luckily, Chaga is relatively harmless to trees, only sprouting its fruiting body when the tree dies of some other natural cause. Chaga is also highly coveted for its nutrition and health benefits!
