Agree with all the reasoning, but haven’t heard any suggestions as yet. The primary annosum we deal with in the fir variety, and for this I suggest: Jacobi’s hollow butt, in honor of my mentor, Bill Jacobi. Or alternatively, The Baker parachute disease, in honor of Fred’s assertion that if dropped by parachute anywhere in fir forests, he could find this disease in 15 minutes.

But seriously, how about fir hollow root disease?
