American Beech Seedlings Description

American Beech Tree Seedling 

 

The American Beech Tree, botanically known as Fagus grandifolia, is native to eastern North America, Nova Scotia, southeastern Canada, and the United States.

 

Also called the North American Beech, the genus name Fagus is Latin for beech, and grandifolia comes from Grandis and describes this tree's "large" folium "leaf. The American Beech Tree is a deciduous tree growing between 52–115 feet tall. It bears silver-gray bark with dark green, sparsely-toothed leaves that grow 2-4 inches long. American Beech Tree buds are long and thin and resemble cigars. The tree is monoecious, meaning that it has male and female reproductive organs, making the American Beech tree a hermaphrodite. Its' fruit is small, angular nut that appears in pairs in a soft four-lobed husk. The American Beech Tree reproduces through the dispersal of seedlings and root sprouts. The American Beech Tree is shade-tolerant and often found in forests. This tree grows slowly and can reach 80 feet tall at maturity. 

 

Care and Maintenance

 

The American Beech tree thrives best when planted in full sun to ensure that it receives six or more hours per day and tolerates partial shade. Planted in rich soil and ample moisture, your American Beech Tree will grow more rapidly, yet this tree is intolerant of salt, soil compaction, and urban pollution. With a dense, shallow root system, the American Beech can be an extremely thirsty tree, requiring high moisture. The American Beech tree requires deep soil that is well-drained to discourage the growth of fungi. Deep rooting ensures that the tree will not make cracks or holes in hardscape features as it establishes and grows. Water your American Beech Tree at least 1 inch per week. Ensure that the water does not puddle at the base of the tree since this will cause root rot. Fully mature American Beech Trees can tolerate short dry spells; however, this tree does not tolerate long drought. Fertilize your American Beech Tree in the spring, using 1pound of fertilizer per 100 square feet. Spread on the ground directly under the tree's canopy and water 

 

Considerations

Yellowish Between April and May, the yellow-green female flowers turn into triangular-shaped beechnuts. The American Beech Tree also bears golden bronze in foliage in the fall. Though ripe nuts are edible, eating large quantities of unripe nuts is not recommended, especially for your dog or other pets that might consume nuts or human consumption. American Beech Tree will provide your home garden a shady respite with beautiful flowers and foliage all season long.
