These Black Mushrooms are the fruiting body of a fungus, and they often sprout after the fungus has already established itself inside the tree. Once These Mushrooms find its way into the tree’s interior tissue, it will start to produce enzymes, breaks down wood fibers, then releasing nutrients needed to feed the Mushroom. They also eats away at the tree’s tissues, it destroys the entire structure. Root damage could result in trees that topple in a high wind. Branch and trunk damage results in weakened limbs that break off, their falling putting people and property in danger.
