American beech (Fagus grandifolia) is a medium to a large deciduous tree found naturally in the eastern United States and southeast Canada.
The tree grows slowly, but the suitable soil will make it grow quicker. It has a shallow, dense root system and can be planted as an ornamental. It has a rounded crown and broad canopy that casts lots of shade. The tree has silver-gray, smooth, and uniform bark. The simple dark green leaves have few teeth and a pointed tip. Winter twigs are slender and long, and the long, thin buds have two rows of scales that overlap.
The tree reproduces through root sprouts and seedlings.
The fruit is a small nut that is borne in pairs in a four-lobed, soft-spined husk. The shell contains 2 to 3 nuts, which mature in the fall and are brown and triangular. These can be eaten by people and wildlife, including caterpillars. The tree doesn't start producing large amounts of nuts until it is around 40 years old.
Beech bark disease happens when the beech scale insects attack the bark and make wounds infected by fungi. The tree can die due to a canker. Colonies of beech blight aphids alight on tree branches, and these insects give off honeydew that causes sooty mold to develop. Giant bark aphids and borers can also damage the tree. The tree is susceptible to beech leaf disease. Mature beeches usually have rotten trunks that create cavities that are used by wildlife.
