the American beech inhabits forests within the entire eastern portion of North America east of the Mississippi. the autumn leaves turn a golden yellow. The leaves, especially on younger trees, are retained into winter. The golden-brown of those leaves, combined with the soft, gray color of the graceful bark creates a wonderland effect within the freshly fallen snows of early winter. American Beech is at its best, attaining its largest sizes within the Ohio and Mississippi Valleys. Beech nuts mature within the autumn and form the diets of an excellent sort of woodland creature. The nuts are rich in oil and are eaten in great quantities by wild turkeys, squirrels and chipmunks, and lots of differing types of birds. The trees will grow to over 100 feet tall. American Beech may be a fairly slow-growing tree, with an in-depth grained wood. Barrels, tool handles, and a few furniture is made from it. The deciduous leaf is straightforward, dagger-shaped and lightly toothed. The bark may be a smooth gray, affording an excellent surface for vandals to deface the tree with graffiti. this could not be done, because it is extremely injurious to a valuable wildlife tree. visit:
