Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

American Beech! Fagus grandifolia is a magnificent deciduous tree native to eastern North America. Here's some information about the American Beech:

  1. Appearance: The American Beech is a large tree that can reach heights of 50-70 feet (15-21 meters) or more. It has a broad, spreading canopy with smooth, gray bark. The leaves are oval-shaped, dark green, and have a wavy margin. In the fall, they turn a beautiful golden bronze color.

  2. Habitat: American Beech trees are commonly found in forests, particularly in moist, well-drained soils. They are shade-tolerant and often grow alongside other tree species.

  3. Wildlife Value: The American Beech provides valuable habitat and food for various wildlife. Its nuts, known as beechnuts, are an important food source for birds, squirrels, and other small mammals. The tree's dense foliage also offers shelter for wildlife.
