The Copper Beech Tree Family Wealth - Keeping It in the Family by James E. Hughes, Jr. If you don’t know what a copper beech tree looks like and you want to see one, go to Rhode Island and look in the front yards of many Newport mansions. When fully mature, a copper beech tree is the largest tree in the northeastern forest. It is a huge gray tree with a beautiful crown of copper-colored leaves that needs five or six adults, or ten children, holding hands to ring its trunk. Once mature, a copper beech tree will live for centuries. Why is this beautiful tree my favorite metaphor for successful long-term wealth preservation by a family? First, think of the courage it takes to plant a tree that takes 150 years to mature. No one who plants the tree will ever see it full grown. Second, someone must invest love and patience to nurture it. Think of the hurricanes, ice and snow, pests, and fire that may consume the tree while it is too young to withstand those hazards. It needs help to survive these threats. Third, as it matures it has to contend with humans who want to cut it down for its wood, and with governments that want to put a road or a new housing development where it stands. The issues the growing tree faces parallel those in the unfolding life of a family.
