Bottom of fig tree with soft spongy mold Can anybody tell me what this is at the bottom of my fig tree? It looks like it killed part of it? Any remedy or advice. Thanks
If the trunk is already dead and the fungus is spreading, it's most likely one of the foot and butt rots at the root. There is nothing you can do to save the rest of the tree, though removal of the dead trunk with the worst of the fungus might mean the rest lasts a bit longer. The fungus will be working its way up the inside of the tree as well as the outside, I'm afraid. It's probably safest to remove it altogether.
