Rust-Colored Fungus at Base of Tree


Anonymous added on September 5, 2012 | Answered

At the base of my well established fig tree is a rust colored fungus-like growth, which appears to be disintegrating the wood. What could it be and how do I get rid of it? It has been there for a few months.

It sounds like the plants have some sort of rust fungus. Treat the plant with a fungicide. We are fond of neem oil as a fungicide. It helps with keeping pests off and is also safe to use. Here is more information:
