A It’s not a good sign, I’m afraid. These bracket fungi are feed­ing on de­cay­ing wood in the tree, which could have been caused by dam­age to the trunk or the re­moval of large branches. The chances are that your tree will con­tinue to grow and crop for many more years but it will slowly de­cline and may be struc­turally weak­ened.
