Professional Tree Removal Services for Beech Leaf Disease
According to The Washington Post, one Ohio biologist John Pogacnik first discovered beech leaf disease in 2012, and it has since spread to New York, Pennsylvania, and Canada. The biggest problem with beech leaf disease is that we don’t know how to fight it.
“Nobody knows what beech leaf disease is. Searches for a virus, bacteria or fungus — all common tree pathogens — have come up empty. Researchers are facing an arboreal murder mystery.” The disease is even comparable to the ash tree destruction caused by the emerald ash borer beetle, “Scientists fear the beech could soon face a plague as serious as those that have devastated chestnut, elm, hemlock and ash trees.”
Particularly in the eastern United States and DC area, beech trees are incredibly ecologically important. “Beech’s almost unmatched ability to grow in deep shade — and the fact that deer don’t prefer its leaves — has made it among the most common trees in the older forests of many eastern states and the District, where it dominates the understory of Rock Creek Park.” If a treatment is not found and beech leaf disease continues to spread, the impact could be devastating.
