Wow, so large a beech. Have heard it is one of the best furniture planks, but it is not easy to grow such a big tree. Thanks for sharing. Best regards, wayfarer99

The Beech was used to make strong but inexpensive furniture many years ago, now the English do not grow timber for furniture or building materials , they just import timber from all over the world. Thanks for your welcome visit and votes. All the best. Bob
