trying to figure out what is killing my tree/plant? Is there anything I can treat it with? Looks like it is spreading. Just started this past fall. Live in Roswell, GA. Tree/plant is original to the house – built in 1996. Has been trimmed and remained healthy all these years. thank you for your help.

    It will be difficult to tell exactly wrong with your ornamental woody plants from these photographs. With the presence of fungi & the trunks discoloring appearance, you should consult with a certified arborist for proper treatments. I’m not a mushroom expert and guessing these look like the turkey tail fungi (Trametes versicolor) (?) You can try the mushrooms experts from one of the included links below for its exact ID and why they are growing on your woody plants. Best wishes to you Heidi!
