LAETIPORUS SULPHUREUS . This fungus had entered this Ailanthus glanulosa altissima via the pruning wound , severely decaying the stem and rendering the tree liable to snap . Decay was not externally evident , a hard crust 1 centimetre thick , of apparently sound wood ( broken away for this photograph ) concealing it . Location: Alton , Hampshire , England .
