"Poria Incrassata -
The Wood-Eating Fungus on Steroids"

Sponsored By:
Forensic Engineering Technical Group, ASCE

Guest Speaker:
Charles Laines, S.E.


Poria Incrassata is a wood-eating fungus that can, in a frighteningly short time, reduce wood structural members to a weak mass of fibers that will not support structural loads.  It is the most devastating wood decay fungus that we know of, according to UC Riverside plant pathologists.
Charles Laines has been investigating the cause and effects of this fungus throughout Southern California for several years.  His talk will focus on identifying and evaluating the impact of this fungus, how to treat it, and how to prevent its infestation.
