Fungi ident in walnut tree

Recommended Posts

Someone needs a proper camera 😆

 

I'd imagine it's Inonotus hispidus, (Shaggy bracket) I see it on Walnut quite often.

Probabaly a good call, only ever associate that with Ash and Plane usually. How does it affect Walnut? Largely irrelevant as its going to have to come down due to the Ganoderma at the base anyway

Grows with apples and sorbus as well.

Depends (as with most of these fung things) on vitality of the tree. Munches away at it nicely, not as significant as ash due to heartwood but often you can see wood pecker holes in the wood volumes in colonised areas and I've noted failed branches associated with it.
