It also takes very well to being grown as a hedging plant producing superb hedges that can be used in formal or informal settings. Beech hedges make effective windbreaks and sort of span the evergreen / deciduous boundary as whereas they are deciduous, they retain the dead leaves on the branches through the winter until they are pushed off by new shoots in the spring time. They are not completely bare and twiggy therefore when grown as a hedge.
Beech can be planted as a single specimen tree which will grow to a maximum height of 30 metres but it will shed it's leaves in Autumn.

I ordered some beech hedging. The company communicated with me and kept me up to date with the progress of my order. The plants arrived when they said they would. The plants were healthy and really good quality.
Excellently rooted saplings
Lovely looking plants but we will wait and see how they grow.
Plants received in very good condition, well packed and delivered very quickly. Highly recommended.
The bare rooted young trees arrived safely. They look strong and well rooted although too early to put in as ground frozen. Hopefully we will have a lovely hedge in the next few years.
