Probably beech scale - an insect - which wounds the tree and weakens it,
making it susceptible to Nectria canker. This disease complex is
discussed in most Forest Pathology texts, and you should be able to get
information from USDA Forest Service, State and Private Forestry, your
state forester, or the folks at Syracuse.
