Beech tree-(fagus) with buds-global warning earrings
STUDY AND NOWLEDGE
I picked this branch at Učka national park in Croatia on 1.11.2018
Beech tree is an amazing tree but the spread of beech is also a reminder of climate change that has far-reaching effects on our environment, beech trees are flourishing where they couldn’t survive before. As established trees start to lose their foothold in certain areas due to the warming climate, beech trees continue to expand rapidly and changing the forest diversity.
Picked on a lawn in the botanical garden of Ljubljana in 2019. For those who need life force and perseverance in their lives.
This is a highly invasive plant in Europe and USA, and almost impossible to get rid of. It’s native to Japan. But although this plant might be a nuisance in nonnative countries it is also a miracle medicinal plant very high in youth preserving resveratrol.
flowers are valued by some beekeepers as an important source of nectar for honeybees, at a time of year when little else is flowering. The young stems are edible as a spring vegetable, with a flavour similar to extremely sour rhubarb.
