Beech Tree

Beaver Trail

Right off the trail stands a large American beech tree. Its leaves turn golden in the fall and stay on the tree all winter, which is a process called marcescence. Here you might even find some edible beechnuts on the forest floor—they’re brown, triangular nuts with spiny husks.
