European Beech Facts: European Beech typically grows to be about 100 feet (30 meters) high. The trunk diameter typically grows to be about 4 feet (1.2 meters). Its life span is about 150 to 200 years, but can sometimes be up to 300 years. European Beech has several requirements for growth, which are humid atmosphere, well drained soil, and moderately fertile ground. A forest of beech trees tends to be very dark. Not many plant species are able to survive there due to the lack of sunlight. European Beech is commonly used as an ornamental tree in parks and large gardens in Europe, North America, and New Zealand. It is also used for solid and laminated furniture, such as desks, chairs, and benches. Other uses are for kitchenware, tools, tool handles, work benches, musical instruments, toys, plywood, and flooring.
