Trunk Dieback on Oak

Is there substantial dieback of trunk?  Are there fungi fruiting bodies (must look in tall grass near trees)?




About the fungus fruiting body - We can't tell precisely, but it is likely a Ganoderma or a Phellinus, in a broad sense.  It would be indicative of pretty extensive decay in the butt and/or woody root system.
