Quick Overview

The Copper Beech tree or Purple Beech tree is a really attractive tree, with wonderful rich purple coloured leaves. The Beech Tree is otherwise known as the Mother of The Woods in Celtic lore.

Young trees can arrive with green leaves that will change to purple the following season.

  • Potentially a large tree, it can grow to 120ft (36m), it is too tall to be grown as a specimen tree in the average garden.
  • However, it forms an excellent hedge as it can be clipped closely.
  • The leaves turn russet-brown in winter and will remain over winter if pruned in midsummer.
  • It thrives in a wide variety of soils and will tolerate shade.
  • When grown as a tree the wood is quite pale and has a delicate figure.
  • It is used extensively in furniture manufacture.
  • Tree supplied is 40 - 60cm in height.
