  1. Thanks to all who took the time to reply. I'm now told its likely advanced beech bark disease with the bark crumbling away from the trunk of the tree due to the progressive nature of the disease. 😬
  2. Any ideas on what this beech is suffering from? 3 years ago it started with slight cracks around the base of the tree that have now expanded letting in bugs, and it's now developing these circular cankers on its bark that are multiplying and going up one leg in particular -see pics. I tried diatomaceous earth on the trunk 2 yrs ago, dont know if I slowed the issues down any or made it worse. We have gypsy moth here, not sure if this is what's got it or if it's something else? Is this big boy going to come down on our heads in a few years? We like him so much that we're building a deck around it (no digging) instead of cutting it down but I'd hate to contort my deck around it only to have it drop dead on my deck - and my family - in a few years bc it's suffering from something fatal. I'm hoping someone will tell me that this is just part of the natural growing process of a beech, but my gut tells me it's something bad.
