The young leaves of the Beech tree will do no harm to your tortoise, but do not feed the fruits, and try to prevent them from falling into the tortoise enclosure as they can be toxic.
This tree has both male and female flowers, with the male flower in the form of a yellowish-brown catkin and the female flower in upright clusters ranging from pale yellow to light red, depending on the species.
