You could, technically, but this can be tricky. Most will not germinate. The most common method is to graft depending on the species of beech. My guess is that you have the European beech, with the spiky seed pods.

I have found a website that offers a method for germinating these. This can be found here: https://www.doityourself.com/stry/growing-a-beech-tree-from-seeds
