“Fagus sylvatica Asplenifolia (Cut-Leaved Beech) as its common name suggests is a beautiful tree of medium height with deeply serrated and long leaves. It is pyramidal in its early years, but is eventually capable of becoming as wide as it is tall. A great choice for parkland where its cut leaves gives magnificent contrast.
Beech thrives just about anywhere other than exposed and coastal locations. As it is shallow rooted under planting is not recommended with Fagus sylvatica Asplenifolia. It does well in most reasonably fertile, well drained soils, except heavy clay or light sand.”
