Weeping Beech
Fagus sylvatica

The Weeping Beech is a cultivated variety of the European Beech. Branches of the Weeping Beech droop noticeably. These hanging branches sometimes touch the ground, and may be so numerous as to hide the tree's trunk. Such trees give the appearance of a massive mound of foliage.
