Description

Most beeches are felled after 80, maximum 120 years. Then its diameter is about 1.2 meters. The trunk averages 30 meters in height, 9 meters of which are branch-free.

 

Beech has a regular to dense structure. Its color varies from white to light brown/yellow. The heartwood and sapwood of beech differ little in color. Freshly sawn, the heartwood is whitish or very light brown. It darkens to light yellow-brown under the influence of air and light.


The veneer is cut in crown, quarter and false quarter.

Beech wood is one of the most widely used and well-known hardwoods in our industry. It is colorless and tasteless which means that in contact with nutrients it does not cause any problems.

 

Because the wood bends very well, without butt, it is one of the most suitable woods for curved work, edges and handrails. It is also used for plywood, stair treads, tools (planers, etc.), many household items such as breadboards, spoon racks, brushes, cabinets and bins, toys, furniture, kitchen steps, etc.
