Heart Rot Disease

Updated: Jun 21, 2022

Heart Rot Disease is devastating for mature trees, which in turn, is often devastating for property owners. While the best prevention is mulching and properly pruning, it is often too difficult to tell if a tree is suffering from this fungal infection until it is too late. Here are some indicators that your tree may be rotting from the inside:

  • Trunks swelling like a mushroom

  • Cavities and/or holes forming in various places

  • Fungal fruit bodies growing on the tree

  • Missing bark or many naturally occurring breaking limbs.

If your tree has mushroom like swelling, it is more-than-likely infected, rotted, and falling soon. The best option would be proper removal.
