Can someone tell me if this is a fungus please
Sorry Ernesto I can't tell what that is.
Can you let us know species of tree this is? This is in Florida - yes?
Perhaps it will look familiar to one of the arboriculturally inclined folks in the broader forums here.
Once the ID of the tree is known, perhaps this thread can be directed to the best forum for a response?
Well, I'm not sure what is being asked. Is it about the harmless lichens on the tree bark? Or what looks like either a bad graft or possibly volcano mulching at the base of the trees? Volcano of mulch - Don't let this problem erupt in your yard! - Favreau Forestry
Sorry I assumed that the question was about what is happening at the base of the tree, not the lovely lichens on the bark. I could be wrong though; hopefully the requestor will follow up with more information to clarity their question.
... and thank you for adding Volcano Mulching to my vocabulary ... I think I will creatively misuse that for something entirely unrelated :-)
Thank you for the respond,yes I'm in florida ,homestead to he exact. I have 4 of this palm tree and all of them have the same problems
Hi Ernesto, thank you for following up with more photos. I don't see any problems on your palm trees in these photos. There are lichens on the bark, but that is normal and harmless.
I hope that helps
Oh ok,good To know. Anything I can do to clear that for the palm trees.
It sound like you are asking how to get rid of the lichen on the bark? I don't know why you would want to eradicate something harmless and beautiful ... but if you were determined to do so, the removal methods would likely to be at least somewhat stressful to your palm tree: Best generally not to mess with a tree's bark ph level and defenses, as it uses these to fight off pathogens.
Cool,then is going to stay like that.lol
Thank you very much
