American Beech


The American beech is a lovely shade tree that produces edible beechnuts, that are enjoyed by a wide variety of wildlife. It is unique from most other trees because its bark remains smooth throughout its life. Also, the surface root system of the tree can develop suckers that grow into new trees; entire beech groves can grow from the roots of a single tree! The American beech grows to be 60-80 feet tall.
