Abstract:

Scattered information is available on the fungi causing decay in dead timber of various forms. Fire-killed timber and logging slash have received some consideration, but the fungi active in wind-thrown timber have been almost completely neglected. The Olympic blow-down of 1921 has afforded an excellent opportunity to study, over a 15-year period, the fungi active in wind-thrown conifers. The purpose of this paper, therefore, is to evaluate the fungi causing decay, and to show the relation between sporophore production and fungi causing decay in commercially important Northwest conifers at intervals after they were blown down.
