DescriptionBeech bark disease (BBD) remains the most serious threat to American beech (Fagus grandifolia) in its native range. Pathologists have historically described BBD as a predictable interaction between the Cryptococcus fagisuga scale insect and a Neonectria canker-forming fungus. It is well known that beech trees infested by C. fagisuga become predisposed to Neonectriacolonization (Houston and O’Brien 1983).
