American Beech Tree in Wisconsin

American Beech Wood for Sale at MTE Wood

Wisconsin is the geographical western edge of the population of American beech. Beech lumber is commonly used to make furniture and flooring due to its resistance to damage and malleability under steam pressure.

Sustainable forest management efforts like those by the Menominee Tribe and MTE Wood has helped keep the local beech population alive in Wisconsin, due to careful management. Please contact us to place your beech wood order!

Beech Wood from Wisconsin

The beech tree has smooth silvery bark and can mature to be over 100 feet tall. It has a characteristically dense system of fibrous surface roots and its wood features a straight fine grain. Beech wood is durable, but steam bends it very easily. Beech takes to finish and glue well, making it a great option for furniture parts like chair backs.

Beech bark disease is currently invading the Menominee Forest, and higher harvest volumes are expected as the disease incidence becomes more severe in the near future.

Beech Wood Hardness

American Beech Wood is rated with a Janka hardness of 1,300 lbf, similar to white ash or red oak. Beech wood has good workability and is commonly used for inexpensive furniture, flooring, lumber, and veneer, among other things. It is often considered as a good alternative for hard maple woods.
