The draft genome of Neonectria faginata was sequenced with Oxford Nanopore and Illumina 250 bp paired-end sequencing technologies. The assembled genome was 42.9 Mb distributed over 24 contigs, with N50 of 4.4 Mb and 98.6% BUSCO completeness. This genome sequence will aid in understanding N. faginata population structure and ecology.
