With its nutrient-rich humus, the beech is considered the mother of the forest.
The Beech in the Tree Family
The beech tree is called "mother of the forest" by the foresters with good reason because it is a miracle cure for poor soils. The beech provides an excellent humus formation and establishes deep, nutrient-rich soils for its neighboring trees and forests. But that is not all that this good mother does for her forest. Their powerful roots intricately penetrate into deep layers of earth and their firm anchoring also protects the flat-rooted spruce from the violence of storms and floods.
Beech trees on hot days evaporate incredible amounts of water, up to 200 liters per day and thus balances and improves the forest's climate. They are one of the largest energy reserves in European forests. They protect against storm violence and lend defense mechanisms against insect bites - a source of great vitality. With its clear, maternal energy, it compliments the primordial power of the oak.
