My understanding is that the disease is native to Europe and European beech has better resistance against the fungus than American beech does. The disease does not appear to be a threat to European beech forests.


here, many beech are infected- but many seem resistant- what's unfortunate is that many loggers cut the resistant beech and leave the diseased beech

as a professional forester, when I mark a stand, if I see a resistent beech, I NEVER mark it and always mark most of the diseased beech- if everyone did this, it might help that species recover
