Mushroom and Moss Habitat


The deeply furrowed surface of conifer bark is a convenient place for mosses, lichens and fungi to grow. They attach to both living and decaying trees. In contrast, smooth madrone bark, which regularly peels and shreds, provides a less stable growing surface. Mosses and lichens use tree bark only as an anchor, obtaining their nutrients from the air. Saphrophytes such as the Agaric, or gilled mushroom, extract nutrients and moisture from decaying wood.
