Tomentosus root rot
- Heartwood of infected roots and trunks is initially reddish brown
- As infection continues white pocket rot develops; decayed wood has elongated pockets or pits, and may appear honeycomb-like in cross section
- Infected trees have reduced growth and thin canopies, produce large amounts of cones and eventually die
- Infected trees frequently break or lodge during storms
- Mushrooms that are velvety brown above and porous and buff colored below appear around the base of the tree in late summer
