If you're looking for an attractive, low-maintenance way to add some screening to your property, pleached trees may be the perfect solution. Pleached trees are grown in a special way on bamboo frames, with the branches trained to grow together and form a single canopy shape.
This gives you a beautiful, sculpted tree on a frame with all year round interest that requires very little maintenance, great for creating privacy screening or windbreaks.
Choose from our range of evergreen and deciduous pleached tree species.

Pleached trees are specially trained plants with long, narrow stems and horizontally trained branches. A row of pleached trees looks a bit like hedge on stilts.
Pleaching is the technique used to train the trees. The crown is trimmed and young branches are secured to a timber framework so that they grow in the desired direction.
Pleached trees are often used for hedges or borders, and can come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
Mature pleached trees offer a number of benefits over traditional trees.
First, due to their compact habit, they require very little maintenance, since the branches are trained to grow together. This means you won't have to spend time pruning or trimming your tree that often.
Second, pleached trees are extremely versatile and can be used to create privacy screens or windbreaks. They can also be used to add height and interest to a property, especially when placed next to a fence or existing wall.
Our pleached trees are grown with the highest quality standards in mind and come from the UK. We offer a wide selection of pleached trees, from small pleached trees for hedging to large pleached trees for screening.
So, you've decided that a pleached tree is the perfect addition to your property. Now what?
When choosing a pleached tree for your property, there are a few things you need to consider.
First, think about what purpose the tree will serve. If you want to use it for privacy or as a windbreak, you'll need to choose a tree that is tall and narrow. If you want to use it for decoration, you can choose a wider variety of screen trees.
Second, think about the size of your property and planting area. Pleached trees come in a variety of sizes, so be sure to choose one that will fit comfortably in your garden. You can also plant pleached trees next to a wall or fence, providing an additional screen above the fence line.
Finally, don't forget to consider the soil type and climate in your area. Pleached plants prefer well-draining soil and need plenty of sunlight, so make sure you choose a pleached tree that is suited for your particular environment and not in full shade.
When planting pleached trees, it's important you find a suitable location for your new tree. Pleached trees enjoy a sunny spot with good drainage, an ideal time to plant is in the spring or autumn season.
Next, dig a hole twice the size of the pot your tree is in and mix the soil with compost or manure. Place the tree in the hole and fill in with soil, making sure to pack it down well. Water well and keep the soil moist until the tree is established.
That's it - your pleached tree is now planted and ready to enjoy!
Pleached trees are low-maintenance, and usually only require a quick trimming once or twice a year. However, there are a few things you can do to help your pleached tree thrive.
First, make sure to water your tree regularly, especially during the summer months. pleached trees need at least an inch of water per week to stay healthy. You can either water them manually or use a sprinkler system.
Second, make sure to fertilise your tree at least once a year during the growing season. A balanced fertiliser will help your tree grow strong and healthy.
Third, keep an eye out for pests and diseases and deal with them as soon as possible. If you notice any signs of pests or diseases, contact us for help.
With proper care, pleached trees can last for many years and add beauty and value to your property all year round.
