The disease is known for decimating the beech tree population in rapid fashion.  

“It’s growing, and still pretty rampant,” said arborist Josh Fritz, of Hartney Greymont, a Davey company, in Needham and a member of the Massachusetts Arborists Association. “Beech trees provide food for wildlife, so as they disappear, our ecology changes. People are really nervous about it.”
