The Giant Polypore (Meripilus giganteus) is an agressive fungus, which can quickly kill trees, primarily deciduous trees.
It attacks mainly the roots of the trees.
It is often unnoticed.
Trees may appear healthy, but may be blown down because of root degradation.
Sometimes the tree dies, but remains standing erect.
Primarily beech and oak are attacked.
