Huge amount of honey fungus on tree

Today in Castle Woods, Dinefwr Park, we found this poor dead tree (possibly oak) with honey fungus fruiting along well over 10 feet of its trunk. Thought a video might convey how amazing it looked.


  1. Splendid ---- good to see extent of fruiting bodies. One observation I have is that, although Honeyfungus must be everywhere seeing the number of trees with 'bootlaces', the fruiting is not as abundant. As with this year which has been relatively dry, I have noted this 'fruiting' in abundance after a hot/dry summer.

  2. Funny you should say that but yesterday I was by the Upper Lleidi reservoir and there must have been at least 50 birch trees with honey fungus on them. It was absolutely everywhere.
