Beech is an important and widely-used hardwood in Europe.
Its wood is hard and sturdy, but has no special beauty until it is attacked by fungi which produce a rich decorative pattern called spalting.
It is a majestic tree that grows to over 100 ft, and it can live for 150 years.
Beech tablets were used for writing, and beech is connected with ancient wisdom and learning.
