Often when a house is demolished, trees and other mature landscape plants are removed. The City requires that the trees be replaced, and adding new plantings to the landscape is required. However, the soil is usually nearly totally disturbed by the demolition and construction process. Does that cause anything to disappear? Right now we are having quirky weather, extra warm for this time of year, leading to the growth of many kinds of mushrooms. Here are two of a group of four that appeared in my front garden this past week near my 1938 house. I also saw a crop of them today near a 1950's house two blocks away.
I am not a botanist, but I doubt that these mushrooms will grow near a newly-constructed house. Unlike the requirement for trees, no one thinks about replacing the soil so there are favorable conditions for mushrooms. I wonder how many other native species, both plants and animals, cease to thrive near new construction. Appearing along with the native vegetation are specific insects and animals. There's at least one animal that likes to take small bites from "my" red mushrooms!
