Brackets on Alder

Recommended Posts

Mr Humphries got there first. :thumbup1:

 

I was going to say Ganoderma species or Fomes, but looks more like Ganorderma as he says. 

 

What is the future of this tree?

It is being removed. It leans over an area where village fetes are held. Owner made the decision to remove it, I wasn’t involved in the decision making process.

If you get the chance can you post up an image of the cross section please, always interested in decay images of Ganoderma species on unusual hosts.

Hopefully these help confirm ID?

Ganoderma spp

 

i would lean toward G. australe looking at the level of decay. 

But I would rule out G. applanatum.

 

mycroscopy needed to check spore size between the two species.
