Fagus sylvatica Red Obelisk Beech Tree
The Fagus Sylvatica Red Obelisk is commonly referred to as the Red Obelisk Beech tree. A deciduous tree, it grows to a height of over 12 meters. This variety of Beech normally grows as a slender fastigiate column and rarely exceeds 3 meters in width. The canopy of the tree starts to develop only about half a meter from the soil’s surface. Its slender growth habit makes it a favourite tree to plant as a screen or windbreak. 
The Red Obelisk Beech tree is visually pleasing with deep purple leaves that have a crinkled appearance. Each leaf is serrated and pointed. In the spring, the foliage of the tree emerges in shades of light red and bright pink which makes it exceptionally eye-catching. In the autumn months, Red Obelisk’s leaves turn a brilliant bronze-orange. After the leaves drop in late autumn, it is still visually interesting because of the deep grey bark that is smooth and unique looking. 
Fagus sylvatica Red Obelisk Beech is relatively hardy. It grows best when planted in full sun or partial shade. Avoid planting the Red Obelisk Beech tree in areas of heavy shade or its uniform growth habits will be severely stunted. Plant the tree in evenly moist soil for best growth. Once established, it can withstand periods of limited drought. Standing water around the tree’s root system kills the Red Obelisk Beech tree by causing rapid root rot. Avoid planting the tree beneath power lines because its majestic stature can get in the way of the lines. 
Many Red Obelisk Beech trees are planted in urban settings that are plagued by high smog levels. The smog doesn’t appear to have any adverse effects on the tree. The tree also tolerates compacted soil that is found in high dense urban neighborhoods. 
The Red Obelisk Beech tree does not require pruning to flourish. However, some people opt to prune the tree to maintain a certain desired shape or size. Pruning can be done in the late winter after the tree enters its period of dormancy. 
Planting a Fagus sylvatica Red Obelisk beech is creating a heritage tree that will be enjoyed for numerous generations. Most Red Obelisk Beech trees live to over 100 years of age or more. They suffer from virtually no diseases or significant pests. Once planted, the tree requires very little care to thrive.
