American Beech

The American Beech tree is an iconic species in North America. Identified by its smooth gray bark and deep green foliage that transition to copper as summer transitions to fall. In one of the oldest sections in the cemetery, one of these trees has been identified as needing immediate care including crown cleaning, clearance pruning, soil de-compaction, and root collar protection.

We are also monitoring a new disease called beech leaf disease that is moving east, originating in Pennsylvania. We will use the latest research on helping these trees resist this disease.
