The beech

A single beech tree can produce up to five metric tons of oxygen per year. Beech is the dominant species in many of our woods.
In some places, the beech trees form a cooling canopy with their dense crowns, in clearings the beech impresses its tall, straight trunk.

Special healing effect
Great air purity, mood-enhancing effect, for treating internal disorders in natural medicine (for respiratory problems, colds, fever-reducing) and increasingly important in psychosomatic diseases such as stress, insomnia

The beech is the most common deciduous tree in German forests. It grows to a height of 40 m, lives for up to 300 years and favours humus rich and calcareous sites.

Interesting etymology
Did you know the word "book" is derived from the name of this tree (writing boards were formerly made from beech wood)?
