American Beech Facts: American Beech tends to grow to be about 150 feet (45 meters) high. The trunk tends to grow to be about 4 feet (1.2 meters) in diameter. Before the creation of the modern chainsaw, beech trees were often left to grow and not cut down during lumbering because the wood is so heavy, tough, and strong. The crop of nuts from American Beech provides many species of animals with food, such as wild turkeys, raccoons, white tail deer, squirrels, black bears, and opossums.
