Fagus grandiflora--American Beech

List of files and visuals associated with this text.

This large tree will reach a height and spread of 50 or more feet. The tree is naturally low branched with attractive glossy green leaves. In the fall the leaves turn bronze but weather to a light tan color. Some leaves are held late into the winter if not blown off by the wind. The smooth gray bark is ornamental. The tree needs an acid soil and is difficult to transplant. Dense shade and low branching will wreak havoc on lawn grasses growing beneath the tree.
