How do I get rid of the fungus on my tree?

There was a stump that was removed so I planted a tree in that spot. So now there is some kind of fungus growing around my tree that is hard but looks like a mushroom. How do I get rid of it?

    First off I have to ask why would you plant a tree in the same spot? If one tree was infected and died or what ever it is evident that there was a problem to begin with.When was this planted?

      You will have to spray the tree down with a systemic fungus control.

    She does not say what happened to the tree that was there Janet so why get on her case? There are many reasons to have a stump removed besides a tree being "infected". I do agree that it sounds like you need to treat the poor tree with a fungicide. It might help us to know more about what happened to the previous tree Rayphine.

    I would suggest Neem for fungus. I've used it for years in Florida so I know it works.
