Have you seen these? These mushrooms are specific to fungal disease called Mushroom Root Rot or Armillaria tabescens. This disease can kill your tree or shrub with initial symptoms of branch dieback and/or stunted growth. The appearance of these clustering mushrooms can be your first sign that the end could soon be near to your beloved tree or shrub. Root Rot mushrooms all grow from a single stype which can aid you in identifcation of this fungal disease.
Once the mushrooms appear close to the stem or base of the plant, the fungus begins attacking the base of the plant including the root system. Plants found with these mushrooms should be removed from the area and resistant plants of another species should be planted in their place. Infected plants are almost impossible to save. Your best control method is to maintain your landscape with proper fertilization, pest management, pruning and irrigation. Also, because of the loss of so many trees in our area, this fungus can live in the stump and large roots for several years. Keep your eyes open! ... See MoreSee Less
