#ProPlantTips For Care

Beech Trees prefer full sun and tolerate some partial shade while they’re younger, working great as understory trees until they reach full height.

Moderate growers, these are low-maintenance trees with strong limbs and no fuss.

Preferring to be well-watered during the crucial establishment period, they need moderate moisture after. Plant in rich, moist, deep, and well-drained soil, not tolerating wet or soggy sites, be sure to properly site your tree before planting to ensure fast drainage.

Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots. And add a generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.

Hardy in USDA growing zones 4 through 7, these are very cold tolerant trees. With no serious pest or disease issues, these are also deer resistant!
