from what I've seen Beech certainly provide an excellent substrate for many 
fungal species. If you do decide to fell then persuade the owners to retain 
as a standing trunk for fungal biodiversity.

Very many thanks Ron. Useful stuff there.
I'd gleaned that it's likely to be quite aggressive, but there's very
little (i.e. none that I've found) on beech. However, as you say, given
the beech is generally less decay resistant, it's probably rather more
liable to be subject to damaging decay than when it's growing in oak.
Humphries and Wright  say 'infrequently associated with the failure of
trees'. Still, with a 27m tree in an exposed site 17m from a house,
discretion is probably the better part of valour.

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?!
