Fagus Sylvatica

Beeches are large, long lived deciduous trees native to England and Europe. They are great, low maintainence big, elegant trees. Beeches bear fresh green foliage that change to a rich golden colour in Autumn, with smooth grey bark. The bark is a favourite for name carving and many of the Beech trees you’ve seen probably have young lovers’ names etched into them for eternity (or the life of the tree).

A Beech tree can grow to quite some size, reaching heights of up to 40 meters, and is a great lawn specimen and shade tree for this reason. Also popular for hedging, screening or pleaching – the tallest and longest hedge in the world is made of Beech. Also tolerates poor or sandy soils, but doesn’t like waterlogged areas.
