Beech Tree: Facts and Information on Beech Trees

Here is some detailed information on beech trees.

Beech Tree (Fagus) is a genus of ten species of deciduous trees in the family Fagaceae, native to temperate Europe, Asia and North America.

The leaves of beech trees are entire or sparsely toothed, from 5 to 15 cm long and 4 to 10 cm broad. The flowers are small single-sex (monoecious), the female flowers borne in pairs, the male flowers wind-pollinating catkins, produced in spring shortly after the new leaves appear. The bark is smooth and light gray. The fruit is a small, sharply three–angled nut 10 to 15 mm long, borne singly or in pairs in soft-spined husks 1.5 to 2.5 cm long, known as cupules. The beech nuts are edible, though bitter (though not nearly as bitter as acorns) with a high tannin content, and are called beechmast.

Beech grows on a wide range of soil types, acid or basic, provided they are not waterlogged. The tree canopy casts dense shade, and carpets the ground with dense leaf litter, and the ground flora beneath may be sparse.

Beech wood is an excellent firewood, easily split and burning for many hours with bright but calm flames. Chips of beech wood are used in the brewing of Budweiser beer as a fining agent. Beech logs are burned to dry the malts used in some German smoked beers, giving the beers their typical flavor. Beech is also used to smoke some cheeses.

Some drums are made from beech, which has a tone generally considered to be between maple and birch, the two most popular drum woods.

Also, beech pulp is used as the basis for manufacturing a textile fibre known as Modal. The wood is also used to make the pigment known as bistre.

The beech most commonly grown as an ornamental tree is the European Beech (Fagus sylvatica), widely cultivated in North America as well as its native Europe.

Beech Tree Threat

Beech Bark disease is a new threat to Canadian beech trees. This disease is caused by the beech scale insect introduced from Europe, and the nectria fungus which is likely native to North America.
