No beech is called the Arctic beech. Antarctic--or Southern--beeches (Nothofagus moorei) are the most common trees in Australia's cool, temperate rainforests. They grow at altitudes of 3,000 to 5,000 feet in the Border Ranges, New England, and Lamington National Park of New South Wales and Queensland.
