Hi guys I’m new here and just figured I would throw in my pennies here to start. A light yellow to greenish streak is common in light colored or”white woods. The color will fade over time and there is no way to prevent that. The tree put extractives in that place to deal with a very minor stress, like air embolism.
Spalting is discoloration from fungi eating the wood. Spalting does not follow the grain or figure of the wood.
That’s the short version. If you would like to know more details just ask.
