Most parasol trees require maintenance at least once a year. Some species prefer pruning twice a year.

The frequency of pruning can be compared to the maintenance of a hedge.
If you prune once a year, then you'll have more waste and the pruning itself will take longer.
A parasol tree should always be maintained with secateurs. Maintenance with hedge shears may have a nice effect temporarily, but creates long-term problems in the long run

Each  parasol shape requires its own manner of pruning, generally you take into account the following rules:

Slow growing parasol trees:
annual pruning
time of year is dependent on the species

Fast-growing parasol trees:
Annual pruning of young trees not yet self-sustaining phase
2-yearly pruning: work growth retardant and gives less pruning waste
time is dependent on the species

Low maintenance parasol trees:
You can choose parasol trees that need a 2-yearly prune or at most a slight thinning of the branches.

Maintenance parasol trees - General


A pleached tree needs support during its young pleaching phase, that support is temporary. When growing and forming our parasol shapes and espaliers, we use natural, bio-degradable materials in the nursery.
This method is labor intensive and requires expertise. The trees are at their best when they rely on themselves. The result is a durably cultivated shaped tree.

Sustainably cultivated without the use of metal
