Beech makes a wonderful hedge as well as a beautiful stand alone tree with the leaves often remaining through the winter. Prune in spring and autumn to keep the shape and height you need. Beech is a long lived native deciduous tree. Its bark is smooth and grey and its russet torpedo shaped leaf buds form on short stalks. The young leaves are lime green, darkening with age. Male catkins hang on long stalks with the female flowers paired in a cup on the same tree in April and May and are wind pollinated.
Found in woodland, Beech grow to a height of 40m with a beautiful domed head. They give protection to other smaller species and are an important habitat for wildlife. They prefer a drier, free draining soil such as chalk, limestone and light loams.

The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
