Replacing wood window trim


A small section of the window frame has rotted away (either that, or a woodpecker went at it)

Here are pictures of the full window and the damaged area close up

What's a good way to fix this? Will I have to replace the whole window for this?

thanks in advance

The individual parts can be replaced. I'd want to determine the extent of the damage before I decided on my plan of attack. Does the rot just involve that one piece of wood? is the sill and brick mold still solid? How deep does the rot go?

almost forgot welcome to the forums!

It looks like its just that piece. The sill and brick mold look ok, the paint looks like it's peeled off the trip, but I'll double check when i get home.

I suppose I should remove the windows and make sure everything really looks ok.
