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.

A pleached quince tree makes a nice addition to an orchard. It doesn't take up a lot of space.

The quince itself is a rather unusual fruit, it is quite versatile when used in the kitchen.

As a tree, it has a very healthy look. It will provide a bit of diversity amongst other pleached fruit trees.

We offer this tree in a couple of varieties.

The pleached photinia or Christmas Berry is an evergreen espalier which, unlike other evergreen espaliers, is constantly changing. By this I mean that the colors change throughout the seasons. During the winter months the leaves are dark green. Early spring brings bright red buds, turning your green screen into a deep vibrant red. While the red colouring slowly subsides,  delicate whitish green pearls soon open into white flowers. During the short period of bloom the flowers are very popular with honey bees.
Important:
Our pleached photinia is grown outside as a sapling. Then it is planted in a container and has one year to grow roots.
The result are strong trees that suffer a minimum of stress to the root system when replanting.

We offer pleached photinia in multiple stem heights.

We specialize in cultivating the parasol mulberry.
Importantly:
- The right variety
- Creating the right shape without the use of metal
- Adequate trunk height
The right variety
For our cultivation we select the least fruit-bearing mulberry trees.
Mulberry trees bearing edible fruits are available upon request.
Sustainably grown
We start shaping these trees from an early age. A high-quality parasol mulberry is always shaped using natural materials seeing as a mulberry can bleed if damaged or grow into the bark and trunk. Using metal fittings will cause this tree problems in the long run.
The parasol mulberry and the plane tree are traditional parasol trees. It is very suitable for dry places. Salty sea air does not pose a problem, yet it is preferable the tree is not placed downwind. The stunning, round-shaped leaves are deeply incised at the base at the end of the branches. The attractive foliage that is visited by very few organisms makes the parasol mulberry a very pleasant tree to spend time under, as it has been done for centuries.
Sufficient stem height
The mulberry already grows naturally parasol shaped. The branches can softly start to hang over. A stem height that is too low gives a very covered feeling.
We recommend a parasol height of at least 245cm
Maintenance
Annual pruning. Very low maintenance.
At the first severe frost the leaves fall off in one night.
Some synonyms under which these trees are sold.
Morus alba 'Macrophylla' / Morus 'Kagayama' / Morus 'Bombysis'

Furthermore we offer:
Morus 'Fruitless' & Morus 'Fruitless' Type2

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.

Blockform or cube-shaped Holm oak or kermes oak.
Blockform holm oaks are usually applied in beam form.
The holm oak is particularly suitable for smaller gardens or where low maintenance is desired. Regular holm oaks soon take up a lot of space and require a lot of maintenance in smaller gardens.
The tree responds well to pruning and displays its special gray-green tint throughout the year. This unique colour is due to fine shoots on the outside of the blockform.
The silver-gray underside of the leaves use light to accentuate this blockform.

It provides a nice contrast with deciduous trees and shrubs, especially in winter.

Important in blockform holm oaks is that no metal or iron fittings are used in the forms.

Quercus-ilex-chene-vert-cube.jpgQuercus-ilex-holy-oak-cubehead.jpgQuercus_ilex_steeneik_blokvorm_kubus.jpg

Blockform lime trees provide added ecological value in places where it would be otherwise impossible due to lack of space or limited root freedom.
The blockform lime tree has a powerful effect.
The delicate red or orange shoots (your choice depending on the variety) that line the block form add a beautiful touch during the leafless winter months.

Available up to size 25/30 in several varieties.
Our beautiful lime trees are, along with the hornbeam, what we are well-known for as a company.

We can offer Quercus hispanica in multiple stem heights.
These species are partly evergreen, usually the wilted leaf remains on the tree until the new leaves appear. However they can remain green during mild winters. This oak bears beautifully elongated acorns.
We offer this tree in tall stems and low screen forms.
Quercus hispanica is sometimes confused with Quercus ilex. The leaves are similar in terms of color. Please consider that hispanica is usually ented. Hispanica species are less durable than Quercus ilex.

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 field maple is suitable for almost all soil types. It can also thrive in a coastal region except very near the sea.
Available in multiple stem heights.
Maintenance
Pruning in the autumn.
The field maple is a fast growing tree.
