Simon and Jasper

I am also monitoring one on cedar and have been for a few years now.

Also found one on a holm oak one year.  Drilling showed nothing and it has
not been seen since.

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.
