White Beech Crown Cut

Fagus Sylvatica L.

Heartwood and sapwood are not differentiated. Color varies from an orange white to a more or less intense pink. The wood rays are easily visible in a tangential (plainsawn) section and are irregularly distributed in short spindle-shaped lines. They can also be seen in well polished quartersawn wood. The growth rings are regularly differentiated and the earlywood is much wider and lighter in color than the latewood. The wood is straight-grained although in very thick-timbered trees there may be some spiral rained/cross grained wood.. The wood grain is fine textured.
