30 Green Beech Hedging Plants 2-3ft Fagus Sylvatica Trees,Brown Winter Leaves


 30 Green Beech / Fagus Sylvatica Plants 60-90 CM

These are BARE ROOTED plants which can be planted from the end of October until April and will be dispatched as soon as the weather turns cold and they become dormant.The dispatch date depends on the Autumn temperature and varies from year to year.


Beech is most commonly available as the species with bright green leaves in spring that darken towards summer before turning copper in the autumn, they then turn brown over winter if they are retained which only happens when used as hedging, large tree forms lose most or all of the leaves in the winter.

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.

    The trees I received were above my expectations, I expected small spindly trees, but instead the trees were good quality with excellent roots and very well packed for delivery. They have already been planted.
    Thank you.

    I was delighted with these. I have ordered hedging whips from other suppliers and these were by far the most competitively priced and the best quality.
