Beech Lumber

Beech (Fagus Grandifolia) is a medium to large size tree that originated in North America. Beech wood has sapwood with a pale brown color and heartwood with adark brown to reddish-brown tint. Another characteristic of Beech lumber is that Beech has small pores, which allow for a fine finish to be achieved. Beech lumber is fairly stiff in character and has a good resistance to shock. Beech wood also happens to be heavy in weight. Some common uses for Beech lumber include cabinet making, furniture, and flooring.
