Common Name American Beech Variety  
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Fagus grandifolia
Description Very beautiful native tree especially in the fall through spring months with its horizontal limbs and coppery bronze leaves hanging on long after many tree species have dropped their leaves. Its bark is another stunning attribute being whitish grey and very smooth like skin. One often encounters this species with dates and names carved in it. Average height at maturity is about 70-100'High x 40'Wide. The nuts were a favorite of the extinct carrier pigeon and today are still a favorite to blue jays, titmice, grosbeaks, nuthatches and woodpeckers. It prefers full sun and rich moist well-drained sites.
