FAGUS SYLVATICA - EUROPEAN BEECH

A large tree that is capable of great height if the conditions suit. It has a long slender trunk which greys with age and bright, glossy, dark-green, creased leaves. Slow growing as a specimen tree but spectacular with time it is also a great hedging option which responds well to trimming.

Beyond the norm
The European Beech trims very well to form a classic European-hedge effect.  The fresh spring new leaves are vibrant green, maturing to a dark green before turning yellow in the autumn and then browning and holding over the winter months.  This makes for an ever-changing hedge through the seasons.

Good Roots………

Roots are the anchors and feeding mechanism for a tree, if these are not right then the success of the tree is compromised.  What might look like a big strong tree may not be mirrored by it root system.  Icon Trees is one of the few nurseries that identify with this issue and dispose of these trees instead of growing them on to the next grade or supplying trees that will not successfully reach maturity.
