Summary The identification of decay fungi in tree hazard assessments is of little value unless information about the likely mechanical effects of the decay can thereby be gained. To this end, knowledge of the broad category of decay caused by the fungus concerned brown-rot, white-rotor soft-rot, is useful but generally insufficient, since the mechanical effects within each category may vary greatly. High resolution light microscopy, combined with strength tests, can provide useful details of… CONTINUE READING
