DescriptionThe fungus Fomes annosus has caused a great deal of damage to coniferous forests and plantations in Europe. The disease caused by this fungus is now widespread in the United States. In the past few years we have become increasingly aware of its threat in the Northeast. It is particularly damaging to 20- to 30-year-old conifer plantations on formerly cultivated lands, especially those that have been thinned once or twice.
