There’s a circle of life in our forests and woodlots. As old trees die they become host to a large number of other organisms that take advantage of the nutrients to live, and at the same time recycle the tree. This alder is reaching the end but it is still useful as a home for this fungus growth. Soon the tree will fall to the ground where it will slowly provide for other organisms, until it completely disappears.
