Birch in the lawn

Recommended Posts

I saw this birch in a lush lawn the other day. There were lots of mushrooms growing around it. Any idea what they are? I'm trying to figure out if they are thriving off the tree

Nick,

This is a saprotrophic Psathyrella species, probably P. candolleana, that lives on dead plant and tree debris and does no harm to the tree at all.
