Wild Mushrooms on Tree Bark

Wild mushrooms are easy to find in the forest. They tend to grow on tree bark. The mushrooms that grow directly on the tree or at the base of the tree are in a mycorrhizal relationship, which means that the mushroom feeds off of the tree’s nutrients. Usually, such fungi are not harmful for the tree. Mushroom pickers usually know if a mushroom is edible or not based on what tree they are found on or near.

I captured this photo of wild mushrooms during a walk in the forest on a crisp autumn afternoon. I don’t think these mushrooms are edible but I did not touch them or disturb them.
