Brown rot damages more wood in the U.S. per year than fires. At one time, the fungi was called “dry rot” because of the crumbly condition of the wood it infects, but the name was changed because wood must be damp in order for it to decay. This type of rot devastates wood, leaving it shrunken, discolored, and cracked.
What Does It Look Like?
