Beech (Quercus)

fagus-sylvatica-banner2.jpg

Beech is a tall, long-lived tree, valued for it's foliage and autumnal colours. Small flowers appear with the leaves, which are a round shape with a fine rugged edge, and vary from a mid to a dark green (or deep purple with Copper Beech). Beechnuts often produced in autumn - edible nuts with shiny brown husks. The bark is often smooth which adds to the character of the trees. Beech is tolerant of a range of different soils including chalk, and can be grown in a woodland garden or as a specimen tree.

The catalogue below is our full range available during the bareroot season from November - March, either in stock in the nursery or, in the case of the larger sizes, available to order.
