Well, that goes without saying.:D

 

 

 

 

So that's why beech hedge can retain a lot of leaves? That's something I never knew but did wonder about, everyday days a school day.:001_smile:

It's because it's trimmed.

Nothing to do with juvenility.  Auxins and abscission.

So why do "young" Beech and Oak retain their leaves through the winter?:confused1:

Where have you got this information from? Have you a link or a reference that I can see?

As “the zone of juvenility” is mentioned in the ISA cert arb study guide

It's something I remember from college.  I know young beech retain their juvenile leaves but old beech hedges will as long as they are trimmed.  Perhaps there's a link between the production of auxins and 'juvenility'.  Been a long time since I was at college and I'm now going to delve a little.
