Stumps and Fomes annosus  - Fomes annosus causes one of the most important and oldest known root diseases of conifers.  It has a worldwide distribution and is especially important in the temperate zones.  Little is known about underground infections and successions involving this fungus; but above ground F. annosus is a pioneer that requires a freshly cut stump surface for successful invasion.
