Purple Beech is a majestic tree worthy of inclusion because of its distinctive red leaves. In spring, the leaves are an attractive brownish-pink but soon change to their distinctive blackish-purple colour.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.0 and 2.6 metres in a 5-12L container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root stock or rootballed stock. Expect a final height of up to 35m (117ft).
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Purple or Copper Beech Tree (Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea')
H, I just wanted to thank you for the great purple beech tree that was delivered this week. The tree which we planted today is a lovely size and condition. I also really appreciate you managing to get the tree to me in a short timescale. I would definitely come to you again if a tree was needed and recommend you for your service. Kind Regards Sandy 0916
Have received today my copper beech tree. Lovely healthy tree very pleased will replace one blown down a few years ago, which was full height. Don't think we'll see it grow that tall. Many thanks 0815
Hi Alan, Thank you very much for the delivery, please don't worry, both trees arrived in good time and in good condition via our usual friendly and careful couriers. This is my second order from Trees-Online and previous trees bought are thriving. In the process of planning next purchase. 0912
Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
