Fuzzy dock pilings

I have several pilings for my deck in Jamaica Beach that have this fuzz. Anyone know what it is and what I need to do to treat it?

Looks like from power washing with too much pressure

Not from power washing... It seems be some form of fungus.

Fuzz

That’s from saltwater wicking into the piling. Not much you can do about and it’s not structural. Those pilings can get a fungas in which the wood gets dry and starts crumbling, that is not good. What you have appears to be fuzzy wood, not uncommon on boathouse and pier pilings.

Just an opinion, but I think it's a phenomena called "de-lignification". May be preaching to the choir, but lignin is the "glue" that binds the wood fibers together. Water exposure accelerates the process over ordinary weathering. Another place you see de-lig happening frequently and severely is on wooden cooling towers. No cure or prevention other than not having water exposure. Not quite practical this instance!
