Artist's Description

Found this Giant-normous Mushroom,Toodstool, Fungus…growing out of the end of the log that was left by our creek. My husband and I left it there as a seat to sit on and watch the water go by. Well this fungus grew out of the end…’Amazing hey?"

Shaggy Scalycap (Pholiota squarrosa)
Fruiting bodies: September – November
Area of infection: roots and trunk base
Wood decomposition: white rot
Comment: This is often confused with honey fungus.
Effect: Weak parasite – Vessels become interrupted – thinning of the crest and flaking of the bark – dying of the tree.
