Winter: The high altitude of the area makes it difficult to manage the cold, but snow is so beautiful that still brings its lovers back to it.
Throughout the Rush forest, there are loads of old trees, such as maple, common yew, wych elm, and alder. In the meantime, beech is more valuable than all the other trees, because, in spite of its scarcity, it is abundant in the area at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level.
The beech tree has lots of foliage and creates a good amount of shadow for cooling down. It does not grow well in cold regions, and warmer areas provide a better environment for its development. Because the roots of the tree are superficial, forests with a shallow bed and limestone surface are the best places for it. The tree can grow up to 35 meters in height and reach 1.5 meters in diameter. The beech tree is very sensitive and it can die regardless of the season’s conditions. The severe winter cold damages the seedlings of this tree and the cold of spring also destroys its leaves. In the summer heat, this tree is not spared and may be damaged.
The tree lives between 200 and 250 years and rises in the vast forests between the ages of 60 and 80 and the open spaces between the ages of 40 and 50. With good soil, every 5-6 years once and in bad weather, once every 15 years, there are fruits on its branches that contain 7 to 5 percent oil.
Beechwood is one of the most widely used woods and is used in things such as the construction of rural houses, doors, and windows, tables and chairs, sofas and so on. The cellulose of this wood is also used to produce fine and delicate silk fabrics. In addition, charcoal and firewood made from this woos have a certain reputation around the world.
