American Beech is a tall deciduous tree usually growing 20-25 m tall, although trees up to 40 m have been recorded.

In studies on patients with seasonal rhinitis, it was found that Birch, Beech, Alder, Hazel, bog-myrtle and Oak pollens are most important as causes of springtime hay fever. However, Beech pollen does not play the most significant role in causing hay fever.

Rhinitis and asthma caused by exposure to Beech wood dust in wood workers has also been described. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
