Evergreen espaliers offer many advantages over deciduous types, if properly applied.
The tree retains its leaves thus guaranteeing privacy even during the winter months.
Most of these evergreen trees grow slower and are easier to maintain.
Shedding of leaves is negligible, allowing you to remain in your neighbours' good books.
We usually sell these trees in screen form because they are able to filter the view optimally. Many of these trees are planted because they are very beautiful.

Pleached evergreen trees require special attention during cultivation, transportation and planting. Since first selling evergreen espaliers years ago, we have  adjusted the way we grow them and have optimized the manner of application. We gladly share our knowledge and experience, gained by close cooperation with gardeners, landscapers and arborists, in creating your evergreen curtains.

We sell Quercus ilex in containers and rootballs but in this case we prefer containers.
Pleached holm oaks are carefully cultivated as privacyscreens and espaliers at our nursery. Cultivating and monitoring these particular oaks is one of the most important tasks at our nursery. We grow single-stemmed as well as multi-stemmed holm oaks for privacy trees.

We consider growing holm oaks to be one of our nursery's specialties. We are able offer these trees with standard stem heights and deviant stem heights. Our extra high pleached screens are rather unique.
Pleached Quercus ilex is one of the most durable espaliers. It also remains the most evergreen, along with ilex. Even during very dry summers and cold winters, the holm oak will retain its leaves.
The holm oak has deep roots and a small root zone, this ensures that the tree does not cause problems with paving, decking tiles, foundations or pavement.

Fruit
Quercus ilex bears acorn nuts similar to Quercus robur.
Like the English oak, the holm oak is valuable to the environment.
Quercus ilex is used as a privacy tree in Belguim. This beautiful tree requires extra attention during cultivation and the first year after planting. The only guarantee for good regrowth is planting a pot-grown tree with good roots.

Holm oak grows in Western Europe, from Northern Ireland to southern Italy. This type is reliably hardy in the UK, except if they are grown in greenhouses. Extremely wind resistant and salt-tolerant therefore also suitable for coastal areas.

The Pallida is a good choice and offers an atmospheric outgrowth. The color difference between the older and the younger provides an attractive result.

Our lime trees are available with standard stem heights as well as with deviant stem heights.

Are you looking for a lime tree with a stem height of 150 cm or 100 cm? We offer these in excellent quality.

Usually you would first choose the distance between the levels and take it from there. Available distances between levels are 30 cm, 40 cm, 50 and 60 cm. 

The distance between levels depends on what the function of the tree is.

e.g. A distance of 30 cm gives the most beautiful screen effect in summer and offers maximum privacy.

The lime tree can be managed with hedge scissors using the four-year pruning technique. The Pallida and the Cordata Lime trees are one of the most suitable lime trees to pleach. They are distinguished from other Lime trees by their beautiful winter look and red twigs. However, it is worthwhile to think about other Lime varieties, as each variety provides a different effect. The Lime tree is a pleached tree with a great ecological value.

Hornbeam in block form.
Beautiful colors in summer and in winter. If you choose the deciduous hornbeam, this blockform also ensures a good result during the winter thanks to the beautifully sophisticated branch structure which remains visible. Of course we also offer this tree in our evergreen section.
The Carpinus betulus is extremely suitable in beam shape and cube shape. We offer block-shaped hornbeam in different models at various stem heights.
The hornbeam has an attractive trunk. We also grow these trees with beautifully twisted trunks.

In order to successfully integrate block forms in your garden, please contact our nursery.
We can advise which dimensions will give the best results, no matter how big or small your project is.

Our pleached Eleagnus is grown specially on its own stem and is in no way an ent.
Available in four stem heights and 3 screen heights.
Soft gray color, completely evergreen. It produces beautifully fragrant modest white flowers during the summer.
The Silverberry is an evergreen espalier.
This tree, which can grow in dunes, produces long shoots in rich soils.
We recommend planting this espalier in dry dunes or very poor soil.
This tree grows in other soils, but additional measures need to be taken.
Available in high stems and low screens up to 250cm tall.
We only offer Elaeagnus in container so good regrowth is guaranteed.
The pleached Silverberry is easy to maintain and is not very susceptible to damage. It is important that the trees are grown on their own stem. This produces a more sustainable result and avoids the roots growing uncontrollably.

The green pleached Fagus or pleached Beech is one of our standard espaliers at the nursery.

We grow this tree in multiple stem heights. We can also provide you with a pleached beech with a lower or higher stem height.

We can also accommodate you if you are looking for an extra high screen.

The beech provides a compact but structured screen in a neutral green. The beech is sometimes confused with the pleached hornbeam. The leaf of the beech has a slight sheen and the color is slightly darker than the leaf of the hornbeam.

The leaves of the pleached beech are marscessant . It is due to this characteristic that you can see the difference between the pleached beech and the pleached hornbeam although nowadays we grow both types as evergreens.   

This espalier is available on screen. Pleached fagus gives a nice result and are similar in terms of maintenance to the hornbeam.

Fagus is semi-marcescant when pleached but marcescent as a hedge.

The fruitless White Mulberry is a beautiful parasol tree with elegant leaves that, like the 'Platanifolia' selection, are pointier towards the end of the branches.
This fruitless parasol tree has all the characteristics of a fruit-bearing mulberry but its leaves are healthier and seeing as it doesn't bear fruit, the fruits can't cause stains on the tree.
The parasol Mulberry can not be grown or pruned like other parasol trees. This tree will receive specialised care in our nursery.
The Fruitless Morus has some special additional features. You can find out all about them at the nursery.

More information about the fruitless parasol mulberry can be found here.
To know if this tree would prosper in your garden, you can contact us or your specialist gardener.

The callery pear is one of the most beautiful deciduous espaliers. The leaves come early on the tree and don't fall off until late in the season. In the spring, before the foliage develops, the tree is laden with white flowers.
Early and late
Because the leaves come out early and disappear late in the season, this tree has a short period of rest, so it offers a long period of privacy. If continuous privacy is desired we recommend other types and shapes.
Planting times
Because the optimal planting period is very short, we offer this tree in a container or root ball so there are no problems with regrowth.
Pear Blossom
The Callery pear tree does not bear fruit. Blossoms are produced abundantly in early spring. The tree is remarkably resistant to diseases that affect the common pear. This ensures the tree always has an aura of health about itself.
The color palette of the callery pear makes sure it looks good in any type of garden. The trees are tolerant of a variety of soil types, drainage levels, and soil acidity.

Preferably applicable to levels.
Dimensions
Available in multiple heights, the standard heights are usually: 100-150 - 180 - 200 -220 cm.
The space between levels is 30cm or 40cm. We recommend 30cm because the callery pear has small leaves.

In practice, this means 4-5 and 7 levels, that can possibly be grown as a screen.

Cultivated sustainably. Not to be confused with the pleached common pear.

The pleached hornbeam is a strong and durable espalier.
At first sight it might seem inconspicuous but upon closer inspection this tree has a beautiful muscular trunk and fresh delicate leaves. We grow this tree in a certain way so that these properties aren enhanced even further.
This native tree is one of our specialties at our nursery. This allows us to grow the pleached hornbeam in both standard and deviant trunk sizes and trunk types.

We are able to cater to smaller gardens with our pleached hornbeam. There are four varieties of hornbeam available.
Available in levels or screen shape.
Sustainably cultivated
We focus on durabilitiy when pleaching the branches, both when growing them in levels or screen shape. This makes our pleached hornbeam unique and maintenance friendly.

Our selected trees keep their leaves for a long time or remain marcescent during their dry state.
Able to withstand high winds, except strong sea winds.

The climbing hydrangea is one of our special espaliers. At first glance, an ordinary creeper but if grown well it can be a real showstopper.

This hydrangea is disease resistant and very suitable for shady places. This plant grows well on dry and damp grounds.
Blooms come out in early summer and remain a long time.
The flowers are visited by bees and moths.

The climbing hydrangea as espalier is a thing of beauty. The branches are golden yellow and light green buds give a feeling of spring, even in winter. The buds come in sheet early and are able to cover a wall in a sophisticated way. The flowers resemble pearls during spring and reflourish during summer. Even when withered, the flowers continue to adorn the plant until the next summer.

 The full beauty of this tree only comes into its own in old age. The artistic stem is then beautiful in its own right. Our nursery offers young trees up to 15 years but our specialization lies in the older ones.

The English oak as espalier.
A native pleached oak and usually planted in country-style surroundings or valuable farmland. The English oak tree grown as a normal tree is very valuable but isn't suitable for many gardens due to its large size. Our pleached screens are suitable for smaller gardens thanks to annual pruning and our selection of compact growing trees.
Maintenance
The pleached English oak is easy to maintain.
The tree is interesting for birds and bees and is loved by other valuable organisms. This pleached oak sometimes retains its withered leaves all winter. (marscessant) This feature makes it suitable to guarantee privacy but this tree is usually planted for its distinct appearance.

The oak bark has medicinal powers, the acorns are very nutritious for animals. The autumn color is orange-red and more striking when grown as espalier than in free form.
The trunk is nicely grooved. Not to be confused with the Holm oak that has the same valuable properties but is evergreen even in winter.
Quercus robur
Quercus robur 'Fastigiata'
Quercus robur 'Fastigiata Koster'

The parasol-shaped hornbeam is cultivated for specific types of gardens.
Light green leaves in the spring provide an attractive and fresh feeling.
Summer leaves provide a cooling shade.

The parasol Hornbeam has an added decorative value due to its beautifully muscular stems.
Becouse of this, we escpecially grow the parasol hornbeam in multi-stemmed parasol shapes.

Autumnal colour ranges from red-orange to golden yellow. Important for parasol shaped hornbeam is that these trees don't keep their leaves in winter so that the tree lets sunshine through.

Growing miltistemmed hornbeam in roof-shaped form is one of our nursery's specializations. I believe this is why we are able to grow the most beautiful and elegant specimens.

The Holm oak as a parasol tree can be planted to avoid people looking in from higher areas.
Furthermore, there are specific applications for which we recommend this tree.
The underside of the leaves are light to silver and give a fresh impression.
The use of evergreen parasol shapes must be done carefully so as to avoid too much shade in the winter months. For this we have developed several solutions with appropriate holm oaks. It is one of the rare trees that are suitable for this type of evergreen shading.
The holm oak is ideal as espalier.

Please feel free to contact us.

Henry's Lime.
This No. 1 bee tree is a rather special lime in our range. Tilia henryana has serrated leaves that run into dentated leaf margins. They are so delicate that they resemble eyelashes.
The decorative leaf of Henry's Lime does not drip, and the young leaves have a color which lies between pink and bronze.
Henry's lime as espalier is not only a beautiful tree, it is also incredibly interesting to bees and butterflies. The flowers hang in clusters on the interlacing branches and are more decorative than ordinary lime blossom. This why many beekeepers plant this tree in their garden.
In addition, hanging the flowers on the basis of the pleached branches means that they are preserved during pruning.
We offer these trees in 4, 5 and 7 levels.
The growth rate can be compared to the ordinary pleached lime. Cold winters can temporarily slow growth but the pleached lime will keep producing numerous shoots.
Available in bare root, balled and airpot +.
