The two links you posted are apparently incomplete, they didn't work for me. But I did find a news video on the subject at

This is another in a long series of introduced problems our trees are facing, which I find very discouraging. It's actually getting more difficult to think of tree species that don't have serious issues than those that do! Hemlock (adelgids), beech (beech bark disease, weevils), ash (emerald ash borer), elm (Dutch elm), butternut (canker), dogwood (anthracnose), chestnut (blight), white pine (needle cast, etc), oaks (sudden oak death), sycamore (anthracnose), etc, etc. Globalization doesn't seem to be working out too well, on several levels.
