The hard, heavy wood is used for tool handles, mallets, walking sticks, and golf clubs.

About Blue Beech

This great native tree grows well in heavy soil and lower light conditions. The catkins and fruits look a little like dangling Japanese pagodas—first green, then becoming yellowish brown in clusters of three-winged nutlets. The smooth greenish gray trunk eventually becomes fluted with age and seems to have muscles. Grows very slowly. Tolerant of most soils. Also known as musclewood.
