Appendix S1. Beech bark disease and forest structure SI.

Figure S1. Self-thinning curve estimated from Forest Inventory and Analysis data for beech-containing forest plots in the 15-state study area.

Figure S2. Left: Stand trajectories (with respect to the self-thinning curve) as a function of relative beech abundance for Forest Inventory and Analysis plots and beech bark disease status, for beech and sugar maple. Right: Regression slope estimates by quantile (τ), with 95% confidence intervals.

Figure S3. Mean tree diameter and stem density for states by presence/absence of beech bark disease at the time of first measurement.

Figure S4. Patterns of nonlinearity in residual variation around regional size–density relationships by duration of beech bark disease infection, for all species combined, beech, and sugar maple.

Table S1. Summary of Forest Inventory and Analysis data used in static life table construction, with estimated year of scale insect establishment.

Table S2. Summary statistics from model selection evaluating departures from loglinearity in de Liocourt tree size–log(density) relationships for all species, beech and sugar maple, with and without beech bark disease (BBD) terms.
