Schwarze, Engles and Mattheck describe its colonisation strategies as 
variable in different species but generally it is a root decay fungi and, is 
faster and more aggressive due to its proteins and enzymes being able to 
break through barrier zones and digest both lignin and cellulose. It is 
therefore classed as a more severe that other Ganoderma species. Beech is 
less tolerant and resistant and, due to it being uncommon on Beech the tree 
doesn't have the strategies to combat resinaceum. Therefore I would be 
inclined to say it is not a welcome coloniser of Beech.

Anyone have experience of the way that G resinaceum affects Beech?  Is it 
more aggressive than on oak? Is it less likely to promote buttress growth?  
Is it more likely to cause a beech to fall over?!
