American Beech Tree Description

American beech is a graceful native tree found in North America.

It originates from the Chicago region and can also be found in Kentucky and other regions throughout the United States. 

It’s an elegant and distinctive forest tree that blooms during the spring season. The leaves grow from buds and appear as tassels with a feathery texture. 

American Beech Tree thrives in well-drained, moist soil with a pH of 5 to 6.5

During winter, the leaves fall off and reveal long thin branches and bark that resemble the look of elephant hide. Most of the leaves fall off during winter, but some of the bottom leaves usually hold on throughout the season. 

The American beech tree is ideal for large areas and naturalized settings; It can be used as a hedge or specimen. This tree thrives in well-drained, moist soil with a pH of 5 to 6.5. It requires full sun but can tolerate shade. 


The American beech tree has a broad spreading crown and a short, sturdy trunk. The average height ranges between 50 to 70 feet, with some trees reaching 120 feet tall. 

Small flowers bloom in separate clusters on the same plant. The edible nut is covered with a covering that is surrounded by prickles. 

The ovate leaves measure 2” to 5” inches long and feature a dark green glossy tone. This beautiful tree is most popularly seen in Chicago, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, and the Mississippi River valleys.
