General info: EDIT
he fruit-bodies of this fungus consist of many upright off-white stalks, branching towards the tip, and growing together in tufts. Their favourite habitat at the moment is newly spread wood-chip mulch, where they can occur in large numbers for the first year, then diminishing numbers over successive years, as they use up the nutrients they require. Thus this is a common fungus in parks and gardens, which we see more often now than in pre-wood-chip days. Some Coral species are poisonous, so it is best to avoid eating any.
