trees with mushrooms

Asked October 11, 2018, 1:59 PM EDT

I have this tree in my yard growing mushrooms out of it as it's a very large tree. I was wondering if this is normal ?

Thanks for question. There is an innumerable number of different fungi that can grow in or on tress. Consequently a specific identification is beyond the expertise of us as Master Gardeners. However you may want to look at the following website:

At the above web site look for a contact to Ron Spinosa (ronspin@uno.com). By contacting him through his email, perhaps he can provide a more precise identification of this fungi?

Good luck!!
