American BeechFagus grandifolia
The formal and stately American beech holds a special place in many hearts. The wide-spreading canopy provides great shade in the summer and beautiful bronze coloring in the fall. It is a versatile tree, often used in parks, golf courses, acreages, and the forestry industry.
The American beech is not a tree you plant for fast growth and quick shade — this slow grower is planted for future generations to enjoy. And what a lovely legacy for you to leave.
