suspected killer mushrooms attack Westmoreland tree

Suspected killer mushrooms have emerged at the base of a majestic tree on the ground of the historically important Westmoreland Terrace Condominiums.  Many persons falsely believe that mushrooms are harmless if you don't eat them.  That's not true.  Mushrooms can kill trees.  These mushrooms and this tree should be watched carefully.

Not all mushrooms are evil, vicious killers. Mushrooms overall make an important contribution to lessening global warming.  But these mushrooms look suspicious.
