Fungi and Decay in Western Redcedar Utility Poles
Keywords:Decay, fungi, western redcedar, poles
AbstractThree decay fungi were isolated from the heartwood and six from the sapwood of western redcedar poles. None had previously been reported in poles of this species in North America. There was little radial extension of heartwood infection beyond the advanced decay.
