The decline symptoms varied but included earlier fall coloring of small leaves, branch dieback, bark loss from main branches, longer healing time for trunk tap holes, reduced radial increment growth, and tree death. In addition, virtually all maple plots showed increased incidence of decline between 1983 and 1985.
