Q: My wife and I love the golden leaves of American beech. We want to plant one in our yard. We have had no success finding the tree at any local nurseries.
A: Jim Rogers at Nearly Native Nursery in Brooks (www.nearlynativenursery.com) says they have American beech plus 800 other native plants for the Southeast. Trees Atlanta (www.treesatlanta.org) hosts an annual tree sale in October that features more than 200 native trees, shrubs and vines.
