Wood-decaying fungi on living trees in China were surveyed over the last 12 years. In all, 102 potentially pathogenic Basidiomycetes were found in natural forests, forest plantations, parks and gardens, and among them 20 species were recorded for the first time on living trees in China. The host(s), occurrence, type of damage, type of decay and distribution of each species in China are given. Most of these wood-destroying fungi are polypores in the Aphyllophorales, and the majority were found in temperate and boreal forests. Of all the species detected, 88 species are known to cause white rot, and 14 cause brown rot; 25 species are considered as common, 44 occasional, and 33 rare.
