Some trees are genuinely picky, needing just the suitable soil and temperature. Others are more laid back and will do fine in almost any soil.

Others are in a third category. They have a definite preference but are tolerant of your mistakes and forgive poor soil.

The butternut tree belongs to the last category. It has yellow buds in the winter time which make it quite striking. Though it's closely related to the pecan, the nuts are not used by humans. Instead, you can leave them for decoration or use by wildlife. The wood brings a nice flavor when used for smoking meat. Though it prefers moist soil, Carya cordiformis or butternut will also tolerate a dry or poor one. Please find it in our tree nursery.

American Beech Tree - TN Nursery

American Beech Tree

American Beech trees are known for their smooth, silver-gray bark and glossy, dark green leaves in the summer, transforming into a breathtaking golden bronze or copper color in the fall. These majestic trees are native to many regions worldwide and have been cherished for their aesthetic, ecological, and practical benefits. Here are some reasons why these trees are an outstanding addition to landscaping: Make Your Yard Beautiful All Year With The American Beech Tree The bark of the American beech tree is smooth and silvery gray. They have dark green leaves that are light on the underside, three to four inches long, pointy and coarsely serrated, arranged alternately on stems. The tree's spring blossoms are cigar-shaped and comprised of long, narrow buds that are copper in color. Little clusters of male and female blossoms appear on the tree in the spring, usually in April or May. Fall is when the female blooms bear triangular beechnuts. Foster a Variety of Natural Ecosystems With The American Beech Tree They have a wide and thick canopy that creates several microenvironments. Underneath the plant, you'll find shade-tolerant understory plants and species that thrive in full sun along the tree's edge. Many animals, including squirrels, turkeys, chipmunks, mice, and deer, rely on the plant's nuts. Cavities carved out by large, older plants provide shelter for wildlife, like birds, raccoons, and bears. Add Shade and Privacy With The American Beech Tree When planted in a large enough area, the thick canopy can effectively hide off nearby homes or busy roadways thanks to its overlapping branches. It also helps that they can reach heights of up to 80 feet. During the hot summer months, the tree's wide, ovate leaves create a dense canopy that filters sunlight well and offers plenty of shade. Promote Enhanced Soil Stabilization With The American Beech Tree They reduce soil erosion by enhancing soil stability via the secretions they release from their roots, which encourage soil aggregation. This is especially helpful on uneven or sloping ground, where soil structure and stability are more important. These trees also have a thick canopy that soaks up rainwater. This reduces the likelihood of soil erosion by deflecting rainwater away from the ground. The tree's leaf litter also improves soil fertility and offers a home for many creatures, including decomposers like fungi and insects, that are vital to the ecosystem's nutrient-cycling process.
