The mushrooms are living off the decaying roots. You could dig the roots up to solve the problem. They are not going to harm anything; you can slow them down by picking as soon as you see them, which limits their ability to cast spores and spread. Some places recommend using a high nitrogen fertilizer to speed up the decomposition of the roots in the soil, but I don't like that idea because nitrogen is extremely mobile and it washes into the watershed and produces all sorts of downstream problems in lakes and streams. That's why I prefer either letting them be or pulling out their food source.
