If one speaks of beech, then red beech is meant. It is considered one of the most important deciduous tree species in Switzerland. The main characteristic of beech wood is a light-yellowish to pink-brown color, which darkens only slightly when exposed to light. The grain of beechwood is characterized by broad rays, which form a diagonal cut to the trunk so-called «veins» (tongue-shaped grain). The wood has a fine-pored, even structure. Older trees have a slightly darker, leaning brown-red color, which can manifest when dampened. The tree starts to develop a red-brown core from the age of about one hundred years. Beechwood is very hard, heavy and is known for its strength.
