Mycorrhizal fungi, which lives in symbiotic partnership with trees, also form fairy rings. Their rings are called "tethered' rings. A tether is like a leash. The fungus and its mycorrhizal partner tree need each other to survive. The mycelium of these fungi always remains joined to the trees roots. Roots are the "tether" that keeps the fairy rings of mycorrhizal fungi from growing too far from their tree.
