Wallace Falls State Park is just outside of Gold Bar, off highway 2 and the Skykomish River. Issaquah is down south on I-90. Free geography lesson!

Also that doesn't look like Wallace Falls. Maybe it's a weird angle on the upper falls?

It's a good place. Easy to access, open all year. Those losers at off-season Tiger Mountain can suck it.

Where I live the size of the tree doesn't seem to be a factor. I think it has to do with infection spreading through the stands and ideal conditions (moisture). Over-mature trees are always more susceptible to diseases but there's a real problem with canker in beech trees. It's sad cause they're real neat and they retain their leaves and make winter better.

I haven't seen beech bark disease where I am, but when I was around the White Mountains I saw it for the first time... on every single tree.

American Beech is one of my favourite trees and the smooth blue bark is the best feature, sad to see it going this way.

They really are a great old-growth species. Where i'm from on the east coast of Canada you'd be hard pressed to find any beech young or old that's not riddled with canker to the point of being unrecognizable.
