Heya guys,
This is my 1st post, so...
Thanks for having me here!

Anyway, today I was cutting grass and found out strange formation in the soil around my Little Gem Magnolia.
It looks like Fungi, but I can be wrong.





Is there any way to get rid of it? I was going to, but decided to ask first...

Thank you in advance,
almaz

Don't do anything. It's normal. It is just fungi breaking down organic matter. It looks dry and some of the leaves are brown. Even the grass looks like its too dry. What is your watering schedule.\?

Thanks guys!
Here's some morning pics...




I water like once a week if there was no rain.

Will it go away?
Can I break and remove it?
Replace it with soil and mulch?

Thanks in advance,

It will go away in a few days or you can remove it. Try squirting it with the water hose for a day or two.

Yep, guys. I c now.
Thanks for pointing out that for me. Honestly I thought it should be completely opposite...
What are my options? Slightly dig some soil around until flare show up?

That's about all you can do at this point unless you move the tree. If you just dig away soil the tree will be living in a bowl, which leads to bad drainage and you will always have to keep soil that washes in removed. How long has the tree been planted in that spot?

This tree was planted on April 19, 2015. Parks Service removed previous tree because it was all messed up. So I decided to plant mine first. I just dug the hole and stick it in there. This tree I always thought I had a problem with being not too deep, because I never dug big hole. It was same level with the soil in the pot it came with. But like you said it turned out to be opposite.

Forget about moving the tree, it's too well established.
