We examined the database of the Forest Research Institute derived from the reports of the forest-managers. We indicated the important pest and pathogen damage areas from the last 50 years. We also compared the data to drought-indexes. The frequency and severity of damages increased from the mid-1980’s. The beech-decline occurred on larger areas, if the values of the drought indexes were above certain values in the predecessing 2 years.
Keywords: beech, biotic damage, damage-dynamics, drought index, climate change
