The Q&A Archives: Tree Fungus

Question: I have two trees in my front yard, on the branches it there is some swelling. It's looks like little muscles. What type of fungus is this and is there a product that I can use to get rid of it.

Answer: Sanford,

I can't tell what fungus that is from the description or in fact if it is a fungus. I suggest you take some photos of the swollen areas and if possible a sample to your County Extension Office and see if they can identify the problem and if necessary prescribe an appropriate remedy. Their contact info is:
1402 Band Rd, Rosenberg, TX 77471
The horticulture agent's name is Mark Countryman.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
