This tree is easily recognised by its longer slender pointed buds . When the tree produces a crop of nuts collect some, wrap them in a duster , and press them with a rolling pin until the duster oozes with oil . Then rub it on your furniture don’t be alarmed if your furniture turns green ..After a vigorous polish the green colour will be replaced by a water repellent shine!
Few plants can grow under beeches partly because the leaves decay slowly , but also because the leaves are small they overlap and the floor of a summer beech wood does not receive much light. This may be the reason why beech has proved popular as a hedge tree, because the area below need very little maintenance. Do you need your hedges cut back ready for the winter ?
