It’s great to see the fungi making an appearance at this time of year.


The fungi pictured below was found in the center of Belfast. I always love going out while carrying out tree surveys in Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland and finding new species. Not all fungi are harmful to trees and most have a beneficial effect.

Penny buns or Porcini Mushrooms are often associated with Birch trees. The collect nutrients from the soil and in exchange get sugars from the tree.

A fascinating world beneath our feet.
