Notes for Identification:

American Beech (Fagus grandifolia) is a  deciduous hardwood tree that has leaves that are oval in shape with a long pointed tip and  saw-toothed edges. 

Source: Floridata - As a landscape tree, the beech is used for shade and subtle fall color. Place a single specimen on an expanse of lawn to serve as a focal point. If you have lots of space, arrange a few beech trees into a small grove to create a shady hideaway for summer days. Be forewarned that the beech's hungry roots and deep shade make it difficult to garden beneath the dense canopy. The tree also has a tendency to send up annoyingly untidy twiggy suckers from the shallow roots. (cut these off, don't apply weed killer as this will harm the tree). A thick bark or pine straw mulch makes a neat appearance around the tree and will suppress stray weeds and moss.
