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.

This is a great nursery !
I have been buying products from this nursery since 2014. My orders always arrive packaged well. The plants are always in very good condition when they arrive. In addition to this product I have bought Thuja Plicata and Escallonia Macrantha Rubra. The plants are of a very generous size, above expectation , well rooted in 9 cm pots and pop into the ground and settle in to the environment instantly. I would not hesitate to recommend these products from this nursery to anyone as I have no reason to doubt the quality. My horticultural friends are envious of my results. I live in the south of the UK.
