I have a maple tree in my front yard that is healthy looking except for mushrooms growing on the exposed roots.  I tried pulling them all up, and throwing them away (meaning, I didn't leave them nearby to reproduce).  Five days later, I noticed that they had grown back and were bigger than before.  We had a lot of rain for much of the summer, but its been dry for at least two weeks now.

This tree is at least 20 years old and is a great location to give shade to my house.  I'm worried that the roots are decaying.  Any suggestions as to how I can help save this tree?  Or am I worried for nothing?

You could try vinegar right on the opening after you pull the mushroom and bag & trash those mushrooms.  If that does not work use funguscide on the mushrooms. Keep children & animals away from this area until it dries.

Thank you, I will try that.
