Redmond Linden tree has Mold
Our Redmond Linden tree had mold. I planted it in 1972 I can stick a hunting knife in about 5 inches on the South Side so it is rotting inside. The leaves are not compromised yet. Can I save this tree and what should I be doing. Pictures attached
Carroll County Illinois
These are bracket fungi which are indicators of internal rot within the tree. I would contact an ISA Certified Arborist to evaluate the tree and determine a plan of action. You can locate a Certified Arborist by visiting http://treesaregood.com/findanarborist/findanarborist.aspx
The decay that is occuring in this tree will not correct itself and there is nothing that can be done and the tree is now in decline.
