That's more like what I have. In fact,I was driving along on my tractor,I have a roof over me,and I looked at a smooth bark tree. I had no idea what kind of tree it was until I looked up over the edge of the roof to see the beech leaves. ::)  :o  Only one on my land,I think.

I have a beech that looks pretty much like that one.

That picture with the cracks is the secondary infection, when the first one happens the white kind of waxy look is what looks like is in your one picture.  I have the waxy type and the secondary cracked bark, along with trees with no bark issues.

So will the wood under the bark have waves or not?

Beech Bark disease is pretty wide spread up here, but I have never witnessed it to manifest itself to look like kbeitz's tree. My opinion would be that is not what it is simply because of never seeing a diseased tree that looked like it.

I will keep everyone updated... It might be awhile because I got projects stacked up to the door.
I did not need it but I just bought a International 350 with a loader and new tires for $300.00 I need to get it home and check out what wrong with the steering. The person I got it from said the steering box broke. It's a very nice looking tractor. Looks like a very busy year for me. So when I catch up I will saw this tree and see what we have.

My first fork lift was a IH 350 U turned around. I got it free because the steering box broke and they lost half the parts. Had to put a manual box on it as I could not find a power one. Years after I found a bad power box and made one good one with what I had. The other problem was starters, I broke several while I had this tractor. Other than that it was a tough, powerful, even fast machine.   On the beech I would wait until fall to cut it down [ as with any tree for lumber when you have a choice.

Yes it will, it looks like beech to me I've sawed some that looked like that and it had a very nice curly grain but it all went into pallets.

Huh, I only build pallets out of quilted maple, never curly beech.  Things you learn.
