MY TREE LOOKS PERFECTLY HEALTHY – WHY DID IT FALL OVER?
A tree may look healthy but have problems which are not obvious to the untrained eye. These can occur both above and below ground. Underground problem areas include root rot or damaged roots. There may also be issues in the above ground structure such as trunk decay, a fracture where the limbs join the main tree, or fungal or parasitic invasions.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF THERE ARE MUSHROOMS ON MY TREE?
There is decay on the interior of the tree which is being attacked by fungus. The mushroom is the reproductive mechanism and disperses spores which then colonize other decayed wood. This is how the fungus spreads.
