    Description

    The advancing front of beech bark disease in the northeast is now located in western New York and Pennsylvania. The disease is killing trees as far west as central New York. Cryptococcus fagisuga scale was found on nearly every tree examined during a northern New England disease survey. From that survey and Resource Evaluation plot data, beech mortality is estimated as high as 50 percent in Maine and about 30 percent in New Hampshire and Vermont.
