Botanical Name:

Fagus grandifolia


North America

Also known as: 

American Beech

Beech exhibits a light brown reddish color with mostly fine, straight grain and uniform texture. There is moderate to high color variation between boards. Its hardness is similar to Red Oak. Beech is frequently used in factory floors and other high-traffic areas, since it wears well and stays smooth when subjected to repeated friction. The wood is hard and elastic, with excellent shock-resistance.
