Beech tree - fungi/problems

Recommended Posts

The fungus is harmless, possibly even beneficial so don't be concerned by that.  Bracket fungus on the stem are positive indicators of internal decay (I appreciate that Armillaria is not bracket) and there don't appear to be any.  The old pruning wounds may warrant further inverstigation and on the 2nd and 3rd pictures there is some black staining that may be an indicator of something sinister.

Thank you. Do you know the name of this fungus? Just for my info. What might the black staining indicate? 


Those buildings behind are a school so need to err on the side of safety with this one.
