Fagaceae / Fagus sylvatica – European beech, common beech
One of the most majestic forest trees in Europe. Impressive branches fluently branch into broad fans of leaves. Away from the woods, beech trees are often used as ornamental trees in parks and large gardens. They form extremely lush, impressive crowns. It’s an impressive tree that can grow up to 50 meters. In its native forest setting, it is a shade tolerant tree that will grow steadily upward in a tall and slender form. But when planted solitary in a park or garden, the abundance of sun allows it to grow freely to the sides as well, resulting in a strong character that improves with age.
