Wood decay fruiting bodies like the ones in our photos can mean that the inside wood of the tree is being slowly but surely weakened and deteriorated. You can help to prevent this problem by making proper cuts on your trees and by painting larger cuts with a coating of copper fungicide. Wood decay is not always a serious problem. You may want to get your tree inspected by a Certified Arborist who can make a hazard evaluation of your tree and see if it needs to be trimmed, treated or removed for safety. Please call for more information, of for the services of a Certified Arborist.
