Beech Leaves

Beech did not colonise Britain naturally after the last ice age, but has been here long enough to have become naturalised. It is not an invasive tree and has an important economic role in forestry due to the value of its timber.
Local provenance is very important to the future of Beech - as climate change reduces rainfall in warmer and drier parts of the UK the use of provenances best suited to adapt to this change is crucial.
This is certainly a better solution than replacing beech with drought tolderant species, such as Holm Oak, as suggested in a recent edition of the Archers on BBC Radio 4.
