    RAKE, best way to break up fungal growth. Usually a situation of humid conditions and decaying organic matter within the area, unless replacing the topsoil around the area its best to rake them up to break them apart and over time the fungal growth will diminish as conditions change.

    First - he's right, you can't get rid of them unless you just rake them off.

    Normally where a tree was removed is where you'll find them most of the time. Probably rotting roots underground. Now if you find them near an apparrent healthy tree - that tree is not long for this world as the roots are dying. The tree may have a few years to go....maybe not.

    a 5-Iron works well also.
