Usage examples "beechen":

  1. I have pursued it on mountains and in lowlands, in " beechen woods" and amid the hemlocks; and while, with respect to its earliness, it overtakes the hepatica in the latter part of April, as do also the dog's- tooth violet and the claytonia, yet the first hepaticas, where the two plants grow side by side, bloom about a week before the first violet. - "A Year in the Fields", John Burroughs.
