Beeches

These burl-y beasts are riddled with the holes of some chomping something, perhaps beetle larvae.
Like eroded gargoyles.
Patches of premature dryness.
Not universally applicable.

In the city, most of our beeches are the introduced Fagus sylvatica, which includes all the weeping, copper, purple, cut-leaf varieties. I put together this post a few months ago to look at the other species found here.
