Notes:

Found these mushrooms around the base of a Bear Oak tree in our backyard. Wondering if this indicates an issue with the tree? Should I be concerned?

    It looks like the tree had soil pushed around the base, leading to rot

    you need a consulting arborist http://www.georgiaarborist.org/Default.aspx?pageId=238912&tab=1

    Thanks for the info. I hope it can be saved. It is next to a favorite path for our dogs.
