General Description

European Beech is mainly found in Western and Central Europe but can be found as far south as Turkey. They can grow for 300 hundred years with heights of 50meters. Often favored with joiners and carpenters due to the wood being easy to work with.

The heartwood is light and the color of biscuit, usually straight grained, but irregular or cross-grained material can occur depending on growth conditions. White Beech dries relatively slowly with a tendency to check, split and honeycombing and requires careful handling for air drying and kilning.

European White Beech is suitable for furniture manufacturing and cabinet making along with joinery parquet strips.

When requesting your European Steamed Beech please remember to state if you would like them to be FSC® or PEFC™ certified (subject to availability). We are more than happy to supply certified timber them if stated to support sustainable forestry.
