Big Beech.  American Beech (Fagus grandifolia) is a handsome tree easily recognized by its smooth, gray bark and toothed leaves, which often remain on the tree through the winter.  Beech is a valuable tree for wildlife, especially turkeys and squirrels, who both depend on its beech nuts as a food source.  Humans often carve into the bark, causing undue stress on the trees and permitting insects to invade the tree.
