That was my first posting on this thread and was made in the absence of
information regarding the target and the inference in your posting was tree
plus fungus equals fell.   That said, the mechanical stability of the tree
cannot be determined from the mere presence of a fungal sporophore, as is
evident in the case of the Barnsbury beech tree (earlier UKTC thread.

"Are you suggesting that tree plus fungus equals dead, dying or dangerous?
There is lots of middle ground.

Mike

Given the tree and fungus species, the proximity of buildings, driveways and
foot paths and the soil type I would suggest that these trees are likely to
have a shortened lifespan and should be considered dangerous. Yes
