I stumbled on a factoid on a UK website (woodland trust or something like
that) citing March 23, 2002 New Scientist article suggesting that structures
like smokestacks, undersea cables etc. could be modified to deduce drag by
installing projections shaped like bracket fungi.

The implication was that bracket fungi may reduce drag on trees and
compensate for stem strength loss.

Has anybody seen the source article or any other research on this supposed
