So do any mushroom producing fungi form mycorrhizal relationships with redwoods? Whats the deal? Do they just have mycorrhizal fungi that don’t form “mushroom” fruit bodies, or root endophytes? Anyone have a link to a good article?
I was surprised to find these in this area-around the Alice Eastwood picnic tables. There were maybe 2 or 3 douglas-firs within a 100 yard radius, none very close.
But it’s almost certainly not growing WITH redwoods, in a mycorrhizal relationship.
There’s a difference…
but it’s not growing with redwood…
A good way to differentiate between the two without seeing the bark is that douglas-fir needles are shed individually and redwood needles are shed in long strands like the ones you see here. Redwood needles are also smaller.
You can see a couple of redwood cones in the second photo.
and I see douglas fir needles in the background.
