Common Green Beech. This is the Beech that is seen most commonly in Britain. The wavy-margined leaves on green beech are, bright green when young, then turning a dark green in summer before reaching a beautiful medley of yellow and burnt orange in winter. 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.
