I just noticed this yellowness at the base of my mountain ash tree, and I have no idea what it is.

Does anyone know about tree fungus?
Is my tree sick?
Has anyone seen this before?

Looks like orange velvet mushroom or orange truffle mushroom. There are 100's of varieties of mushrooms.
Causes usually wet or too damp conditions. Also possible root rot at base of tree. Dig up and air out the area if possible. Get a fungicide control at the garden center if needed and follow directions.
Old mature trees are very susceptible to these fungi.

Thank you! That explains it. The neighbor's underground sprinkler system is leaking, and the tree is in the water's path.
