Morning,
Probably already said but I recall that Fistulina sets up the conditions 
necessary for Grifola frondosa to establish, from memory, by initially 
digesting tannins which would otherwise resist it.
Kind regards,
Adam

Subject: Does the presence of Fistulina hepatica (Brown Oak in oak) 
predispose an oak to other decay fungi

Good morning all,

A slightly off-the-wall query -

One understands that the presence of one fungal organism in a tree may be
associated with the presence of others - I've seen meripilus developing in a
tree which had had Ganoderma for some years before, for instance; and
research seems to show that different fungi may be present as latent or
actual organisms within a tree.

Fistulina, once it has developed into brown oak heartwood, is not said to
weaken the tree's tissue; but I'm interested to know whether anyone has any
experience of it assisting, so to speak, in the colonisation of an oak by
other, basal decay, fungi.

Any thoughts, comments or references gratefully received

Hope everyone is coping with our strange new world..

Atb

Rupert
