Spalting, fungus staining.

This tree came down during Hurricane Irene in August 2011. It fell in a backyard in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. We limbed the tree and mills two logs worth of slabs with our chainsaw mill in the owner's backyard. We let the slabs air dry for a year in the backyard and then hard carried them through the house to our trailer.
