  1. Wow an impressive crop of mushrooms! I’m in no way qualified but the internet tells me there isn’t a chemical control ... hence my original question. I had the original oak stump ground out but the fungus eruptions have got progressively worse Each year. As I understand it If clearing the ground is an option it may help .... but from what I can ascertain you’d have to clear a LOT of ground and just would be practical for me ( also the tree i planted now has a tpo on it) Everyone on this forum is very helpful, I hope you find a solution
  2. Thank you for the links they’re very helpful. Because the tree has a tpo on it I don’t think I can dig near it’s roots so was at a bit of a loss if there was anything I could do. The hedge next to the tree is very mixed yew /holly/ hawthorn / oak / laurel !! It has absolutely loads of the mushrooms under it but still looks ok. I think the tree is ok (it’s 12 years old) it does have a bit of dead wood / a small mushroom (which doesn’t look like hunny fungus) growing from the base and the bark is splitting.... is this ok ?

  4. The tree has some leaves that have died back / yellowed prematurely, but I don’t think it’s going to die any time soon. I’ve been watching the fungus for years now and The problem for me is that the fungus is spreading and now infected the hedge, and has sprouted mushrooms on the other side of the garden. I really don’t want it to spread to the whole garden (I’d like to keep the oak which has a tpo and is planted immediately adjacent to where the mature oak stump was ground out)
  5. Thank you ! Can I do anything to get rid of it / stop it getting worse ? the tree has a TPO
  6. Hi I hope this is something you can help with. 12 years ago i had a huge mature oak tree, (estimated 95 tonnes had TPO) The base was rotting in places and started to sprout mushrooms from it’s base. These were sent to a laboratory by the council TO and identified as collybia fusipes. The tree was considered dangerous and felled with TO approval. The council insisted that I replant oak in the same position. - this made no sense to me as the ground is infected but I went ahead as per their wishes. however each year since then clumps of mushrooms have been sprouting at this time of year, and over the years we are getting more mushrooms. To the point that this year the mushrooms are growing out of my garden wall, from the base of my adjacent hedge and under large laurel / holly specimens and there are loads if them. can anyone identify if this is the original collybia or could it be hunny fungus ? And what can I do to stop this from continuing to get worse ? also the new oak has a TPO so I can’t peel back the bark or dig up the roots to look for Other signs to help identify this mushroom. i can provide more pics if needed many thanks for your help !
