Hollow Tree Fungus Alert

There is a serious situation developing in the East Village today: hollow tree fungus!


Hollow tree fungus.

Here is a close-up:


Shelf fungi, also known as fungal conks, grow on decaying and hollow trees. The presence of these mushrooms indicates that the tree has a disease and is rotting on the inside. The diseases can lead to severe damage in just a few months. As the tree’s internal decay increases, more mushrooms appear on the bark.
Unfortunately, I don't remember where this is, but I can tell you I took the picture ten days ago, so this tree is ten days closer to falling down than it was then!

So many sick and fungus-y trees… in the East Village Today!

[UPDATE: This tree is on Avenue C at East 5th Street!]
