I have three Himalayan white bark birch trees growing the my front lawn. In the last few days (during this lovely dry spell) I noticed pale medium sized mushroom-like fungus growing around the bases of all three. The ground is quite dry at the moment. Need I worry?
These will soon wither away and the tree should be fine. People often think that any mushroom is honey fungus, which is a killer disease, but it kills a tree here and there, very rarely three trees at once.
