The beech

A solid guardian

Already singed by Virgil in the Eclogues and described by Pliny the Elder, evoked in poems by Leopardi, Ariosto and Pascoli, paid homage in stories by Mario Rigoni Stern and Hermann Hesse. The Beech crosses great pages of literature, and it is no coincidence that its smooth bark represented one of the first supports for writing. Traces of this have remained in the etymology of many languages, as in English the word ‘book’, derives from ‘beech’. Perhaps it is because of this ancient function that this tree, among various peoples, is an emblem of wisdom, linked to the act of transmitting knowledge and preserving memory. Centuries-old custodians of traditions, this is also why the beech forests in the Lodano Valley, in Ticino, and Bettlachstock, in the Solothurn Jura, have been part of the World Heritage List for about a year, recognised by Unesco together with similar ones in 17 other European countries.

In English the word 'book', derives from 'beech'.

Distinguishing a Beech is not complicated. In summer, the leaves are oval and glossy, with a wavy margin and very pronounced parallel veins that decorate them until they resemble origami. In autumn, they turn from yellow-orange to red-brown in colour. But even in the winter season, without leaves, the tall ash-grey trunk stands up straight like a column.
An important wood native to central Europe, it is used for musical instruments such as violins or pianos; its resistance to splintering made it the ideal material for making rifle stocks or toys. Beech wood is hard and compact and is therefore required for furniture, parquet flooring, stairs and for making paper.
