Beeches are a distinct group which are native to temperate regions in the Northern Hemisphere. The native beech Fagus sylvatica is one of the most valuable trees for large-scale parkland planting, but there are many variations which make fine garden trees - the Dawyck beeches in particular are some of the best foliage trees to be grown. Easily grown in most soils, but especially suited to chalk.
