Beech (American)

Fagus grandifolia

Majestic. Durable. With smooth, grey bark and beautiful bronze fall color, the American Beech grows up to 80' tall and 50' wide.

The obvious use is as a specimen; however, utilizing it in groupings with other conifer evergreens is very attractive as well. While not unreasonably demanding, American Beech is not a tree for either extremely dry or heavy clay soils. Drainage is important since soil compaction will kill the American Beech. Perfect for use in large parks and lawns. Beechnuts mature in the fall and are edible.
