A Closer Look at Beech
It’s a fact that beech trees can grow in a variety of different soil types, with many reaching more than a 100 feet in height. This species of tree produces a fruit called the beechnut. This contains a lot of tannin which is enjoyed by a variety of animals, even though it’s bitter in taste. A beech tree can be identified by its smooth silver bark. The classification of the European beech, Fagus sylvatica, is quite complicated, with a variety of different names proposed for different species and subspecies. If ever you need to get into the shade, a beech tree will offer the perfect cover.
Why is Beech a Special Wood for Burning?
The wood is fairly easy to split and once professionally kiln dried will burn for a long time as its moisture level will have been reduced to around 20 per cent. Like all hardwoods, it is dense and it also produces a strong flame when lit. Beech produces more energy heat output than birch or ash, though for general warmth it’s certainly comparable to oak.
