Blue beech is a great tree that is seldom seen in the landscape let alone available for gardeners. Nice score!
Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

Beeches are really are super trees. I don't know if they all do, but the ones I have seen when mature are gigantic. Best of luck with it. Post a pic or another video in the Spring.

I think I loaded a photo of a maturing Blue Beech that I normally call the American Hornbeam or Musclewood. There are a good number here in Pennsylvania in mature woods, especially above creeks and streams. I've seen a good number in the canyons of Starved Rock State Park near Ottawa, IL. It should grow about 1 foot/year for you. It is a wonderful tree. Since your tree is a baby still, many might not be interested in it yet.
