more aggressive than on oak?>>

Hi Jerry

My tuppenceworth.

Might a better question be the way G resinaceum affects functional wood of 
any species?

The answer to that is it doesn't.

Basidiomycetes aren't 'aggressive'.

<<Is it less likely to promote buttress growth?>>

Buttress growth development is down to wind loading and vitality, not the 
decay fungus.

<<Is it more likely to cause a beech to fall over?!>>

No more or less than any other decay fungus.

Cheers
