Quercus Ilex Pleached Trees, also known as Holm Oak Pleached Trees or Holly Oak Pleached Trees.
Pleached Trees are full standard trees on a clear stem of at least 1.8 metres tall from the base to the start of the crown. The branches are trained generally along a bamboo frame in flat rectangular shapes.The Holly Oak or the Holm Oak is a native to the Eastern Mediterranean. A naturalised oak in the UK it was introduced sometime in the 1500's and is one of the very few evergreen oak trees found in Britain today. Holm Oak lends itself well to shaping - the shrub/bushy part of the tree is reasonably fast growing (the stem stays the same height). This full standard form is easily kept in shape with an occasional trim. Quercus Ilex Pleach Tree is a large specimen tree with dark glossy silvery green leaves and a darker trunk or stem.
Slow growing and evergreen, the Holly Oak is well suited to the art of pleaching. Pleached Quercus Ilex on long clear ‘stilted’ trunks can look quite spectacular in the garden particularly when used as above fence screening over an attractive stone wall. Pleached Trees are also ideal if you want to create an enclosure, walkway or garden room where you don’t necessarily need a solid barrier. Standalone a row of pleached Quercus Ilex allows light in and gives a privacy without blocking the view.
These elevated hedges on stilts, allow beautiful stone work to be exposed below the fence line while providing screening above. More open and airy and less dense than solid hedging below the foliage line, evergreen holly oak pleached trees work well in urban gardens where a small vegetable patch can be kept separate by using an attractive wall of pleached trees.
Once established, your will find your Quercus Ilex pleached trees are relatively low-maintenance, requiring just one prune per year to keep them in shape.
