For today's National Tree Week post here is a fine 360-degree panorama or photosphere of a scenic beech wood in Ireland.

Covered in moss and with its own little niche containing water, a wooden rockpool this was one of the finest trees in the woods. 

Beech trees Fagus sylvatica are not native to Ireland but these characterful imports from Europe have made a home here. From the famous Dark Hedges to woodlands and private gardens, beech grow well in Ireland and as seen here are happy on banks as they have shallow roots.

Producing abundant nuts, a walk through a beech wood is like no other as you crunch along under the tall trees and in autumn they provide a fine spectacle of red/brown colour.

Check out one of my other 360-degree panoramas of Trinity College Dublin's Long Room Library.
