Description

I have puzzled over blue decomposing wood for years -- wondering if there was a natural cause or something like spraypaint by trail maintenance crews.

Blue stain fungi (http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/resources/health/field-guide/sds/bluestain.shtml) seems like a likely candidate. They are carried and facilitate bark beetle infestations and the Kenai Peninsula is plagued by spruce bark beetles.

there was a lot of this species on this tree. The last photo is another example, which was too high up to examine closely.
