Question. There is a large ash tree on the parking near my house. I can see mushrooms growing out of a couple broken off lumber stubs way above ground level. Can the whole tree possible be colonized?medicdanoParticipantSeptember 14, 2017 at 6:22 amPost count: 4987

If it was a box elder tree, my guess would be knot hole oyster mushroom.kenhumpParticipantSeptember 14, 2017 at 3:27 pmPost count: 12769

Yes look like they are. My concern is that the storms indicate the tree is in words shape that looks at first glance. If it comes down in a storm my neighbor and I could be cut off since we live on a dead-end. Big tree. 50-60′.fisher24ParticipantSeptember 15, 2017 at 3:56 pmPost count: 50
Well it is a shame I have to say this, but you need to say something to the owner of the tree. If you don’t and it falls and damages someone elses property, the person with the property damage is on the hook for the damages. If you do, then it will be the land owners insurance/bank account on the hook. Basically need to cast negligence.
Early this year, my boss had his neighbors tree fall down and take out his new fence and pool house. He was on the hook but the insurance company said it he mentioned to his neighbor about the tree being rotten, it would have been on his neighbor to replace the damages.Antler ObsessionParticipantSeptember 15, 2017 at 4:58 pmPost count: 370
That large of an ash tree indicates it is pretty old. Eventually, the Emerald Ash borer will get it. Probably best to get ahead of it and just take it out now before the inevitable happens and causes more damage.kenhumpParticipantSeptember 15, 2017 at 11:17 pmPost count: 12769
Thanks guys. Property owner is aware, but not concerned. The mayor has looked at it this too. He is my neighbor on the dead end. What really surprised was 2 of the clusters growing out are on the south and Southwest side, full sun, 20′-30-‘ up.
