  • Beech trees are worthy of attention

    “If the word noble had to be applied to only one kind of tree, the honor would probably go to the Beech.”- James Crockett

    Beeches are stately trees that can be easily identified in the fall because of their golden color; and in the winter because the leaves have a tendency to remain attached to the tree.
