Fungi ID on mature deodar.

Recommended Posts

As part of a bigger job the client has asked me about this cedar.


It is mature, perhaps over mature, in a situation of some concern, a few large limbs have been removed over the years.

There is a bracket fungus on the wound of the most recently removed limb, 3 meters up on the left as we look.


Wondered if any of you peeps could identify it so I can tell him and we can move forward with a decision.


TIA of course.

A suggestion and definitely not an ID...  on a conifer, 3m up... Phaeolus schweinitzii, Dyer's Mazegill.  Not a good one for the tree.

Dodgy cut, probably, not really my concern.


Another pic of location.


Nice Cedar though. any other shots of the fungi you were able to get? Be good to see a little more of it.
