The Red beech Fraxinus ferruginea

Previous - Next

The Red beech (F. ferruginea), so called on account of the color of its wood, loves a still colder climate than the other, and is found in the greatest perfection in British America. The leaves are divided into coarser teeth on the margin than the foregoing species. The nuts are much smaller, and the whole tree forms a lower and more spreading head.
