Turkey tails, trees, all in one

18 Feb

Today I’m sharing with you my desktop background picture, which in North America goes by the name Turkey Tails (Trametes versicolor). This mushroom can be found circumpolar, so it is one of the most common fungus around and is becoming more well known to folks outside of the forest due to it being a source of PSK which is being used in many countries for treating certain types of cancer.

Below are a couple different views of a downed maple tree trunk with adorning Turkeytails. Here one can’t help but be seeing how alive a so called dead tree can only be.
