Mighty Beech

I’m still attempting to learn my Eastern tree species.  Let me tell ya, there are just a few more out here than I’m used to in the Alberta boreal forest. There I think I had, um, 7 species to ID. Here, there are dozens (at least).

But the smooth bark, straight trunk, and majestic crown of this showstopper isn’t one I’m likely to forget, especially during a fine display of fall colours.

  1. One of my top three favourite trees. I can’t wait to see your other photos.

    Thanks! It’s a great tree – I think I’ll be photographing it a lot more down the road. My other faves are birch and eastern white pine. Yours?
