As a specialist in evergreen screening, here at Paramount Plants we have a very large selection of evergreen screening trees and hedges that provide instant privacy. As we are specialists in sourcing and shipping mature plants and trees, many of our largest & most mature plants are over 3 metres tall. This is ideal of course if you are looking for an instant solution for establishing privacy in your outside space.
As our customers are rarely looking to buy just a single, isolated hedging plant, we usually run special offers when you buy 10 plants or more. Visit our Evergreen Screening page for details.
What Are Pleached Trees?
Full Standard Trees that are frame trained as a flat rectangular shape are known as pleached trees. This is an extension of the age old art of espallier, literally taken to new heights. The tree is grown with a clear stem as a full standard, reaching circa 2 metres of trunk. Meanwhile the head of the tree has been expertly trained and pruned with the aid of a frame to create a flat rectangle. The training frames are constructed from bamboo and the tree’s branches are selected and teased along the frame, carefully held in place with wire supports. Any wayward shoots are trimmed away and the tree soon takes on a fabulous architectural shape, which only requires a shape-up trim a couple of times a year. Choose evergreen species trained in this way, to create an above fence or above wall privacy screen, providing valuable boundary screening throughout the year.
