I've got an American Beech that I can't figure out what's wrong with the bark. I'm positive on the ID but the bark is cracking and not smooth like it should be. Could it be Beech bark disease? I didn't see any white powder, cankers, etc. The only thing that looks different is the bark cracks. Thanks for your help.
