American Beech Tree Mature Height: 60-100 ft.  Soil / Climate: Likes moist soils. Very shade tolerant. Beech grows on a wide range of soil types, acid or basic.  Notes: Trees are hardy and long lived but have had recent problems with disease. Bark is light gray and smooth. Elliptical leaves with cousely toothed margins and parallel veins. Fall colors are yellow to orange and bronze.

    Beech tree

    Posted by Brian McCraney on Dec 19th 2019

    Tree arrived in great condition with small buds in the trunk. Leafed out shortly after being planted but seemed to struggle after a couple months. Hoping it will continue to thrive next spring. I plan to order more beech trees as I am happy with the condition the trees arrive in.

    Convenient, good product

    Ordering online was a breeze and the prices were awesome. The product came neatly and efficiently packaged. We planted the saplings 5 days ago, so I can’t speak for their success thus far, but given the quality of the saplings, there shouldn’t be any issues. The Tree Company generously threw in a sample tree which we graciously planted! We definitely recommend this company to anyone anywhere (we are located in Georgia).
