Re the last par. of Gerrit's post:
An observation re Kretzschmeria - I have seen it behave as a saprotroph on
old basal wounds on beech, in a stable relationship with actively growing
trees over periods of more than a decade; implying that it too may be
triggered into aggressive growth following trauma - root damage/loss,
pruning, wind-rock etc.

And a final question : is Kretzschmaria deusta an exceptional case, because
it starts out from the heart wood as a saprotroph, changes to a parasitic
mode once the mycelium has invaded the cambium and returns to being a
saprotroph once the tree has died ?

 
And now I shut up too.
 
Kind regards,
