Beech is an enchanting species and known as the queen of British trees.
Leaves are oval with wavy edges, yellow-green in spring, bright green in summer and turning bronze in autumn and winter.
Mature trees grow to a height of more than 40m and develop a huge domed crown.
Although not evergreen, Beech will retain old brown leaves in winter that provide additional interest and screening.
Dry, free draining soil such as chalk, limestone and light loams.
Value To Wildlife:
Provides an important habitat and food source for woodland animals and wildlife.
You’ll receive a 2 year old well established whip that's between 20 to 60cm in height.
This is a deciduous tree and so will shed its leaves in autumn, in order to protect itself from the cold winter weather. Come spring, it’ll burst back into bud and begin to flourish once more.
