Trees are constantly exposed to a multitude of microorganisms, but only a few of them (mostly fungi) are capable of causing diseases. When a microorganism invades a tree, the latter often reacts through a defense mechanism known as compartmentalization. Researchers at the Canadian Forest Service have been studying this phenomenon for several years in trees that have sustained different types of damage, notably from maple tree tapping.
