American Beech Trees can grow almost anywhere in the country... from northern Minnesota to southern Texas.
They are ideal shade trees. They have long branches that create a large, dense shade canopy... protecting anything underneath from the hot summer sun.
The dark green leaves have a unique pattern that adds character to your yard... and they turn a bright bronze in the fall.
The beautiful blue-gray bark is very smooth and looks elegant in all seasons. The wood is very strong and is very damage resistant.
The American Beech Tree's nuts often attract many forms of wildlife, including pigeons, squirrels, and bluejays.
Beech Trees are typically understory trees, so they can grow in areas that don't get much sun. They're also very disease and insect resistant as well.

You can still order, but due to cold weather, we have delayed shipping to the areas shaded on the map below. We want your new plant to thrive right out of the box, so we will wait on shipping your order until the weather is ideal. This includes anyone in
Growing Zones 3 - 6. If you are unsure of your growing zone, visit our
Growing Zone Finder.
Some plants are not available for immediate shipment, and delayed delivery is noted.
We will resume normal shipping in the Spring. Please see the table below for your approximate ship date.
