As far as I know Mushtrees are part of the regrowth mechanic in DST (http://dontstarve.wikia.com/wiki/Regrowth), I have chopped mushtrees before and it always grew back - It's been a while since I've done this (I'm not sure if the new update/patch messed up or not) I chopped the red mushtrees again during late Winter and as always, I left the mushtree trunk in hopes for it to grow back like before..., it was supposed to grow back by Summer but it never did. I started to get worried, I asked other twitch streams about this and they told me that it "takes time" next season came along (Fall season) and it still didn't grow, I noticed something..... the red mushtree trunks started to disappear. I noticed way too late, by the end of Winter and early Spring, I went back to caves only to find out all the mushtree trunks that I left behind just vanished. Fortunately I have a backup save of previous day counts that still has a few of the tree trunks left, I'm hoping you could take a look into this issue and help me save the remaining red mushtrees trunks I have left in the map.. I chopped about 40+ mushtrees (I didn't dig up the mushtree trunks though) I noticed that I cannot save all it, some are already gone from the map (unfortunately, the save I have overwrote previous saves before chopping the mushtrees) I also have made a save of the day I found out the all the mushtrees tree trunks has vanished.
Here's the save with the remaining red mushtree trunks left: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xsyv3kyjk35jzgv/PS4.zip?dl=0

I also have the screenshot of the maps, etc..
The map that shows a few mushtree trunks:
Here's when I noticed EVERYTHING just vanished....
I'm really disappointed right now, if I knew there was a bug, I wouldn't have chopped the mushtrees in the first place.
I have a few options right now...
- Stop playing this world until this bug is fixed so I can save my mushtrees
- Deal with the loss of 40+ mushtrees and have HUGE & unpleasant dark areas near my cave base area.
- Reload my third backup save that takes me back to 7300s with all the mushtree intact but lose over 600 days of progress including Misery Toad kill, base changes, loots, rss, etc...
