Fagus sylvatica is a large tree, capable of reaching heights of up to 50 m tall and 3 m trunk diameter, though more typically 25–35 m tall and up to 1.5 m trunk diameter. A 10-year-old sapling will stand about 4 m tall. It has a typical lifespan of 150–200 years, though sometimes up to 300 years. In cultivated forest stands trees are normally harvested at 80–120 years of age.
