understand anything about hypocreales, but the best site that I found till now about this is this one. When the branch was cutted, the branch stub become a susceptible part, could be this, I’m not sure. Could it be hypoxylon in first stages?

It looks related to this: Nectria

in the extreme lower right or are those also fungi? The sapwood looks very porous, the bark is thin, and it has HAIRS on it! I know there are a lot of types of oak in the world but hair in the bark? Whatever it is it seems to like growing straight up thru the hardwood – and that could be in the pores of oak…,

I would

It’s not fluffy, it’s tough.

it looks more like Trentepohlia aurea (a green alga)
