I've dealt with one on a Scots pine a long time ago but can't find the report.

The only other was on a cedar, identified from a photo.  Test drilling in Feb 2014 found localised decvay that was evidently being compartmentalised fairly well and had not increased appreciably by April 2019.  The tree had well developed buttresses and good vitality and, as far as I know, is still there.
