BEECH GREEN

Beech Green

Beech Green (Fagus Sylvatica) are a well known tree/hedge and a favourite amongst many. It is one of the most popular native hedges in the UK and is very versatile, suiting stock proof country hedges as well as formal hedges for your garden. They can live for hundreds and even thousands of years.

The Beech Green hedge can be trimmed to as low as two foot, and can easily be maintained from here upwards. It suits well drained soil and prefers to reside in soil that is either chalk, light loams or limestone based. Don’t expect to plant anything beneath a Beech Green hedge or tree (under its canopy) as not many plants survive. It can be grown in partial or full sunlight and likes to be trimmed in the late summer months. Once established, it can withstand drought and extremely windy sites. It’s fast growing, often growing around one to two feet a year.
 
It is classed as a deciduous tree that has lovely light green leaves in spring, that then turn a darker shade of green in summer. Come autumn those leaves will turn to gorgeous golden yellow, and an exquisite copper colour in winter. This hedge makes for a great alternative to evergreen hedges, as although it is deciduous it will retain it leaves during the winter months, resulting in a good privacy hedge all year round.
 
It is a great hedge in areas where there is pollution and salt spray, as these two things do not bother the Beech Green hedge - unlike other hedges that are more delicate to these conditions, thus making it a great roadside hedge.
 
The Beech Tree/Hedge is associated with femininity, and is thought of as the queen of British trees. During Celtic times it was thought to have had medicinal properties, helping to relieve swellings, with the leaves being used as a poultice once boiled. The wood used to be used to smoke herring, and the timber is used today to make furniture, utensils, sports equipment and for the use of fuel.
 
When planting these hedges we recommend they are spaced 12-18 inches apart for a single row, but if you would like a double, staggered row plant them 18-24 inches between each plant and 15 inches between rows. We are able to provide these hedges in either bare root, pot grown or rootballed form to meet your specific requirements.

Green Beech Hedge-Green Beech Hedging, Fagus Sylvatica Hedge.


The native Green Beech is a particularly versatile hedging plant, suitable for both formal garden hedges and more extensive stockproof country hedgerows. When trimmed as a hedge Green Beech can easily be maintained at any height from 60cm (2ft) upwards. (The world's tallest Beech Hedge at Meikleour in Scotland stands at 30 metres (100ft).
The delicate wavy edged new foliage emerges light green in late spring and darkens to a rich bright green during the summer months. As Autumn progresses these leaves will often change to a buttery golden yellow before turning to a familiar rich copper in winter.
Green Beech is technically a deciduous tree however Beech Hedges will retain their leaves in winter, this can be encouraged by giving your Beech Hedge its annual hair cut in late summer. The retained leaves give year round privacy making a Beech Hedge a good alternative to evergreen plants. The coppery brown leaves are also unharmed by salt spray and pollution making Green Beech an excellent choice for a roadside hedge.
Beech Hedge may be grown successfully in full sun or part shade and will grow in any reasonable soil (including chalk) providing it is well drained. If your soil becomes waterlogged in winter we would recommend you plant Hornbeam another similar native species that thrives in wetter conditions. Green Beech is a tough and relatively fast growing plant 30-60cm (1-2ft) it will tolerate exposed windy sites and drought once established.
We recommend hedging plants are spaced 30-45cm (12-18ins) apart for new single row Beech Hedges, for a really thick hedge plant a staggered double row with 45-60cm (18-24ins) between the plants and 38cm (15ins) between the rows.
All of the Green Beech plants on this page are suitable for hedging, we have an unrivalled selection of sizes to suit all budgets available bare rooted, rootballed or pot grown. More information about these options can be found in our plant size guide.
