Very interesting thread evolving here as to what fungi eventually turn up on 
logged wood. Like Julian, it is my experience that, for example, Daldinia 
survives on Ash logs and Chondrostereum thrives on Oak firewood-wood. The 
wood pile is such a great natural laboratory ...

At my last house I got through a couple of Tonnes of firewood a year, and I 
only brought the choice cuts home from sites. Living in a residential area, I 
made a point of ringing wood up on site so as not to be using a chainsaw at 
home. But occasionally there would be some long sections sitting there for 
months. I found that Kretz and Armillaria victims got no worse, basically 
deprived of internal moisture they gave up. But the saprophytes wasted no 
time, I regularly got Nectria cinnabarina and Stereum but not a lot else. The 
latter could render a log fairly useless as firewood pretty quickly. Dried 
out logs are  anightmare to cut anyway, so they usually ended up tossed onto 
on a truck going to the coup, 3 or 6 months after I thught it would be a good 
idea to bring them home...

Yeah, I was being a bit simplistic, thinking aloud. That said it's
surprising what sometimes pops up on our pile of waste timber, that is
possibly destined for firewood at some time, which is not to say that some
of it doesn't decay away rather than becoming nicely seasoned. Something
certainly seems to happen to timber converted to firewood and then put
under cover, something that doesn't necessarily happen to timber not
converted, even when that's under cover.

If I live to be a hundred and fifty and don't forget anything I might get a
handle on it...... Then again I've not started well.

Plus it can be inoccuous in early stages without any noticeable loss of

Plus it only commonly affects a few UK species.

Not necessarily so, Bill, because the nature of firewood means that the
conditions have dramatically changed bearing in mind Kretschmaria is a
facultative parasite ... of live wood ... I think ...

If that were the case, would I not find kretzsch on my firewood fairly
regularly? Or at least see it a lot more regularly.

Hi Jonathan

It's likely already in the new host, lying dormant as a latent
propagule.
Waiting for the environment in the wood around it to become
dysfunctional
so it can wake up and move onto the next stage of its life.
