Only looking on a tiny phone screen myself but I see (i think)
- no evidence of lighting strike
- a white fuzz and cubical rot, possibly Laetiporous mycelial felts
- black stuff I can't see very well. Could be fire damage or Armillaria plaques?
- doesn't look well compartmentalized, hence decay column close to surface, poor t:r ratio and failure.
I imagine one of the mycophilic trio will confirm/deny/offer better suggestions. Did it come down in the strong winds we've had in the south east?

Re: nasty salix failure.

Difficult to pin down a fungi here but not laetiporus, this is whte rot, maybe a gano or cold be Phelinus igniarius if that fungus also has mycelial sheets and i think it may.

Im going gano myself
