The most common type of beech species in Romania is the European beech (Fagus Sylvatica). These are large trees that can reach a height of 40 m and can live up to 300 years or more. It is usually white, pale cream or pale brown and is steamed to relieve drying stresses while also bringing out a pinkish-red colour. The wood is quite hard and has a fine and uniform texture. Beech has exceptional steam bending properties, even when there are knots and irregular grain. It can be bent to very small radii, which makes it particularly useful in the furniture industry.
Beech is an important and widely-used hardwood in Europe. Its hardness, wear-resistance, strength, and excellent bending capabilities, coupled with its low price, make this hardwood a mainstay for many European woodworkers. Overall good workability; it machines well, and glues, finishes, and turns well. Beech also responds superbly to steam-bending. It does, however, have a large amount of movement in service, so movement and wood stability must be taken into account.
