Beech (Fagus Sylvatica)
Beech hedging is a deciduous hedge plant that provides all year screening and colour. Beech hedge plants can form dense hedges that are easily maintained and only need pruning once annually.
Beech leaves turn brown in autumn, but are retained for winter months. This enhances its winter appearance and makes beech hedging suitable as a year round hedge screen.
