Artist's Description

A slowly spreading patch of laminated root rot ( Phellinus weirii ), a fungal forest disturbance agent, has left four these tall Douglas-firs ( Pseudotsuga menziesii ) dead. Conk fungus has since moved in, with fruiting bodies visible on some of the trunks. Nevertheless, the lost forest giants still have a role in the ecosystem as “wildlife trees”. These snags provide habitat for numerous arthropods and can serve as nesting and perching sites for many birds.
