Hey Noah,

This stuff was growing in dense balls near the base of standing trees and on the roots of fallen trees. I did not see any spread out in a sheet, as would be expected for Phlebia tremellosa. Older specimens (not shown) lacked the fuzziness seen in these images. Older specimens looked like irregular hard white blobs.

This stuff appears to be killing the evergreens. Native hardwoods are regaining a foothold in patches where the planted evergreens are dying out.

real young
