Planting European Beech Trees

Planting projects at my Bedford, New York farm continue with a large group of beautiful young European beech trees.

Over the last couple of weeks, the outdoor grounds crew took on the task of planting about 300 specimen trees. I wanted to create hedges in two of the large horse paddocks. For the three specific areas, I chose a collection of beautiful European beech trees, Fagus sylvatica, or the common beech - a deciduous tree belonging to the beech family Fagaceae and native to the woodlands of central and southern Europe.
