I just came across this concept and these articles, though it is several years old. Interesting. Soon we may be incubating our wood with rot fungi.

Maybe I can't fix it, but I can fix it so no one can fix it

Interesting, this could help explain the tone qualities of the deadhead gulf cypress that I use in my builds. The "Pecky" and discoloration in such cypress is caused by fungus.
