Lightning damage & Fungi

Here is Pluerotus ostreatus (Oyster) fruiting from an old strike on Horse chestnut, that has yet to occlude.

 

Saprophyte feeding on the exposed dysfunctional sapwood.

Here, an Oak which has Fistulina fruiting out from behind the wounded bark.

 

This is heart rot with it's mycelium travelling through rays to exit at the most ergonomic point.

 

Also, pic 4 shows the rhizomorphs of an Armillaria species which is travelling up inside the damaged bark.

quite a smorgasboard!!!! all edible arent they!?!? well maybe not the laces. tasty and interesting. just my sort of thread :001_cool:

 

Edible indeed Mark, but maybe not the Fista whilst in that state.

 

 

 

 

Here, an Ash with both Daldinia colonising the upper sapwood dysfunction & Ganoderma sp (possibly applanatum) situated within the basal region.

what are the grey shrooms forming on the rootplate? and is th lump above the ganos a perenni?

 

Perenniporia in the vicinity on another Ash about 50m away, but that one above the Gano's is another Ganoderma.

 

 

 

Grey Shrooms ?

 

You refering to the small cluster of cut stumps ??? :biggrin:

Hm yes that's all I see. :lol: Eyes and mind playing tricks again; seeing fung where there is none? Happens to me too. Mayhaps a bit of objectivism might hold back that wandering?

 

Thanks David for documenting this. Had those wounds been pruned/traced at time of injury, and the roots invigorated, one wonders if closure may have outpaced infection. Could have been an entirely different prognosis?

Who knows Guy?

 

Guess I'm just documenting decay type/progression here.

Not aware of any research around this type of specific wounding and long term occlusion and it's effects on vascular function & static mass stability ?

 

I would suspect a study around how different tree species cope & adapt to this disorder, would be of interest.

In the Netherlands, on beech we sometimes see a colonization of the exposed sapwood in the strike wound by Inonotus cuticularis.
