Fagus Sylvatica is the tree most people refer to as ‘green beech’ and when grown as a specimen tree will attain a height spread of 30 metres on reaching maturity. One of the most important woodland trees in the UK, this tree is native to Southern England.

However, Beech is more regularly planted to form an outstanding formal hedge, although it is more suited to lighter soils. Spent leaves cling on during the winter to give a partial screen where privacy is a consideration. Beech does suffer from some diseases, notably Phytophthora which is more prevalent on poorly drained soils. It has a greyish smooth bark and waxy leaves.

Fagus Sylvatica Purpurea or “Copper Beech” is one of the most striking mature trees in the British Isles, magnificent specimens can be found in many larger town gardens. With its bright purple leaves which hang on through the winter, a hedge row of “Copper Beech” is most desirable. Although not really suited to heavy clay soils, beech trees and hedging are extremely tolerant of the wind and frosty conditions.

Beech should be planted in a double staggered row at the rate of five plants per linear metre to form a dense stock proof hedge.
