Abstract

The extent of beech bark disease was examined on permanent inventory plots in western Massachusetts and on Bartlett Experimental Forest in New Hampshire. The amount of disease-caused defect was correlated with a reduction in the proportion of beech in a stand. Sites on lower slopes and with greater abundance of hemlock contained more defective beech.
