In this Patriot Ledger article, arborist Daniel Cohen of Hartney Greymont, a Davey company, talks about the warning signs of beech leaf disease and preventative measures to protect trees.  

The beech tree, with its gray bark and striking red foliage, is a staple of the state's landscape.

American beech trees are native to the eastern U.S. and grow in most states. Colonists brought European beech trees to this country. Some European beech trees in the state were planted more than 100 years ago, according to Daniel Cohen, certified arborist and assistant district manager of Hartney Greymont, a Davey company. 

But a disease, known as "beech leaf" is spreading through these picturesque trees, and local arborists want people to know the warning signs.
