Strange fungus-like growth on tree

Posted: 01/04/2013 at 19:16

Yes, it is a large tree. Some of it looks dead already, but other parts of it look ok.

We are getting a tree surgeon in to tend to some other large trees, so I'll get him to look at it at the same time.

Can it spread to other trees? We have a lot in the garden, so I'm now concerned about the others.

I have two trees in my back garden. I have no idea what type they are as we have only lived here since November and they haven't had leaves on them yet.

A large branch has broken off one of them. Inside the branch, the wood has a whiteish look:


On the outside of the tree, there are also fungus-like things growing on its bark:


These are hard and wood-like to touch.


Is this growth killing the tree? If so, can I stop it somehow?
