Chopped down a dead Cedar Elm this weekend. Wood has the most interesting internal "markings". At first, I thought they were "bug trails", but they don't appear to be. Wood is just as dense in those spots. And the spots exist from base to branch.

Anyone know what it is? Curious if it has anything to do with cause of death.

Found my answer. Dead tree was being devoured by powderpost beetles.
