Learn More About The Beech Tree
Watching the buds of the Beech (fagus) tree unfurl into delicate fresh green leaves is one of the most powerful signals of the renewal of Spring. Later in the year autumnal frosts, turn the leaves a magnificent rusty-red colour before turning a leather brown. The leaves of the Beech tree often linger right through winter until they are forced off the tree by Spring growth. The Beech tree grows very tall, and has a smooth, grey-blue bark. The Beech tree sends out purple flowers when it over 40 years old. Large old Beech trees are suited to climbing and building huts. The Superfolk forest canopy collection is inspired by the gentle shelter of a Beech tree canopy on stormy days.
