European beech trees are one of the most popular varieties of deciduous trees out there. With large, dense amounts of teardrop shaped leaves, the European Beech can double as both an ornamental tree and a shade tree in your yard. The bark takes on an irresistible grey colour, that only serves to accent the natural beauty of the tree.
Care for the European beech is easy. They prefer full sun, and should get at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. They thrive in acidic, sandy/loamy soils, that are well-draining. Keep the soil around the tree moist.
