sapwood of roots - deterioration

I wonder if anyone can venture a view on the rate at which the sapwood of a
woody root is expected to deteriorate following the death of the root.
Assuming a discrete time of death in one growing season, could it have
become woolly and easily crumbled between the fingers 12 months later? Or is
it more plausible that it would take longer than 12 months to reach this
state?
