Plum flavoured Woodworm

The plum tree in the garden has not looked good for a while now.   Where the trunk forks, the water has got in and the centre of the tree seems to have been rotting out slowly.  

Some of the branches have died off completely now.   Although the 'plum' bit is very dead, there seems to be much living in it still though.

I am not sure how long the tree will last before it becomes unstable and has to be converted to firewood.
