The Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Gold,' also known as the Yellow Columnar Beech, is a large columnar tree with brilliant yellow leaves.



The Yellow Columnar Beech has dense and tight branching, making it exceptionally suitable for planting as a standalone tree in a location where it has limited space to spread widely.


Leaf Color

The leaves of the Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Gold' emerge bright yellow in spring, gradually transitioning to yellow-green in summer.


Autumn Coloration

During the fall, the tree displays a stunning yellow autumn color before some of the leaves partially drop from the tree.



The Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Gold' blooms in May with inconspicuous flowers.


Beech Nuts

Following the flowering, characteristic beech nuts appear in the fall. These nuts are enclosed in a green to brown cupule on the tree, which is lightly hairy.



The Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Gold' thrives on almost any nutrient-rich and well-draining soil. Particularly on nutrient-rich sandy soil, the Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Gold' will flourish. On wet clay soil, this tree may feel less at home.



Due to its columnar growth habit, this tree requires minimal pruning, making it a low-maintenance tree.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
