Fagus (Beech)

One of the finest specimen trees available

Fagus (Beech) are very shade tolerant and adaptable to a wide range of soils and conditions, including some drought and salt. Offering beautiful foliage in shades of gold, bronze, green, and purple as well as attractive smooth, gray bark, Fagus are a standout anywhere. The fuzzy, yellow beechnuts which adorn the tree in summer and fall are an important food source for much wildlife, including birds and small and large mammals. And the lovely slender, gray to silvery bare branches in winter complete the year-round appeal of Fagus!
