Beech tree

Fagus sylvatica - tree

"Common Beech". Large round-crowned tree, also often used for hedging and screening. Young leaves are pale green, turning glossy dark green, then yellow to orange-brown in autumn. Foliage on juvenile growth (e.g. on a hedge) is retained in winter until new foliage emerges in spring. Roots can be shallow and very widely-spreading. Will tolerate most moist but free-draining soils, including chalk - will not tolerate waterlogged conditions.

This makes a nice rounded large tree as a specimen.

Feathered (with branches all the way down to the ground) trees, planted closely together, are an excellent way to make an instant Beech hedge; using our container grown, semi-mature feathered Beech trees you can make an instant hedge of anything from 2.4m (8ft) to 4m (12ft) or more.

Although "everbrown" (the dead leaves are retained during winter on juvenile growth, i.e. when regularly clipped as a hedge), and thereby giving winter cover as an evergreen would, this is still strictly speaking a deciduous plant and as such is exempt from the rules which can potentially limit the allowed height of evergreen hedges.

Available as standard trees 12cm to 20cm girth

Grown in Yorkshire

Most of our trees are measured by girth (circumference) in centimetres at one metre above ground level, eg. 12/14 and 14/16 which conforms to European standards. Fortunately as a rule of thumb the girth size roughly equates to the height in feet.
