Whatsoever is Lovely

Tree-Fungus

This fungus I noticed on the large bark of a mango tree.

I am not sure what type of fungus this is.

I don’t know whether the fungus is good or bad for the trees.

My understanding is fungus on a tree can cause damage to the host by acting like a parasite.

Please correct me if my thought is wrong.

I also get confused between the terms ‘mushroom’ and ‘fungus’.

Let me accept the fact that I know nothing. And even if I act smart…I can’t know everything.

“Now when you cut a forest, an ancient forest, in particular, you are not just removing a lot of big trees and a few birds fluttering around in the canopy. You are drastically imperilling a vast array of species within a few square miles of you. The number of these species may go to tens of thousands. Many of them are still unknown to science, and science has not yet discovered the key role undoubtedly played in the maintenance of that ecosystem, as in the case of fungi, microorganisms, and many of the insects”

  1. It is amazing to look at the little details. Mushrooms are a type of fungus, at least that is my understanding. Fungus can be detrimental. This is especially true if the natural order has been disturbed (tree farming of non-native species, or the arrival of a non-native fungus in an area). Non-the less the fungus have a role in the circle of life and when one looks closely they can be quite lovely.
