The Nigerl beech , a common beech in the area of Markt Bad Neualbenreuth in the Tirschenreuth district , is halfway between the Neualbenreuth hamlets of Ernestgrün and Altmugl on the edge of the forest southwest of the connecting road.
At 35 meters, the 250-year-old beech is just as high as the nearby giant beech , which had to be felled in 1999. Only a four meter high stump remains of it. The Nigerl beech is particularly well branched and has a trunk circumference of 500 centimeters. What is particularly striking about the giant tree is the mighty trunk, which is grooved alongside.
The tree is fungal and looks badly damaged (as of September 2019).
