Arbtalk fungi guide

Recommended Posts

I had it growing all over some cut beech i had stacked in a corner outside for a while, came to pick them up to move them and i heard a tearing sound, in doing so it was trying to move several pieces at one time that had stuck together. Once i prized them apart, thats what they were covered in! I just scraped it off and its not come back since. Have they been exposed to the weather Saul or been anywhere with excess dampness?

Yes, it was under a drip in the warehouse.

Found these on Christmas eve, in a damp corner of one of the sheds on the farm.  Probably not tree related, but I thought they were interesting. Any ideas, anyone ?

looks like hair ice.

caused by a fungus on the wood 


Hair ice is a rare type of ice formation where the presence of a particular fungus in rotting wood produces thin strands of ice which resemble hair or candy floss.
