Is this Meripilus?

Recommended Posts

 

Is this giant poly pore? Bad news I know if it is, how long would you say tree has left? The fungi is on the other side of tree roots also so all around the tree. There is a heavy lean over a driveway which is main entrance of a posh hotel so I think ASAP if it deffo is Meripilus cheers

Yes, Meripilus.

Tree is likely to be right royally fuched !
 

Examination would be needed to confirm how far the roots are compromised. 
 

The vascular columns ‘look’ sound 

but it’s how they connect to the roots will be key.

 

How was the crown looking?

 

Any fruit bodies away from the tree out on the roots?

Thanks for reply, crown was a bit thin for a beech in early September. Fruiting bodies quite far out on some roots.

What device would be best to inspect with?a spade digging down a little to in see roots more? It is on a hedgebank
