    I'd thought that the green discoloration of dead ligneous wood one sometimes sees in the forest was due to fungal activity, but somebody more knowledgeable than I told me that it was a normal process of the wood itself. I’d like to know the name for this process and what’s going on, chemically.
    Thanks.

    Thanks. Now that you mention it I remember seeing those beautiful little fruiting cups on the green wood.
