Definitie bladhoudend of marcescent: Bladhoudend wil zeggen dat het blad heel lang dor op de boom blijft maar niet noodzakelijk wintergroen is. Wintergroene bomen zijn steeds bladhoudend. Bladhoudende bomen zijn niet altijd wintergroen. Bladhoudende en marcescente bomen bieden ook afscherming in de winter. Enkel in de jonge jaren van de boom en tijdens een korte overgangsperiode in het voorjaar is het bladerdek minder afdekkend. Marcescente bomen zijn in tegenstelling tot wat beweerd wordt niet altijd stabiel, weersomstandigheden, leeftijd en grondtype kunnen ervoor zorgen dat bladeren zich niet of minder lang vasthouden.

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 grow pleached trees in multiple sizes. There is a large choice of young and old espaliers, something for everyone's budget.

Planting espaliers begins with making an informed choice. Tree species and tree shape very much determine the atmosphere of a garden. Pleached trees can serve as a background, neutral and unobtrusive if so desired. A green wall that is able to conceal a building in the distance or the looks of a curious neighbour. Making the right choice requires taking various factors into consideration. Finding the size you want, the type of tree, the appropriate shape, the tree species according to soil, the right color, the required incidence of light.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Due to our years of experience we can propose solutions that perhaps hadn't crossed your mind yet.

Blockform trees have several advantages. These trees are easy to maintain and can be kept within the desired dimensions, allowing them to support the architecture of a building as a higher structural element.
Our blockforms are available in standard sizes and custom sizes.
We have beamforms and cube shapes in a beautiful variety of sizes.
Slender beamforms or cube-shaped trees with unusual dimensions are also available.
In addition to the various dimensions of the cube-shaped crown, we also offer several stem heights.
Deciduous or semi-evergreen
Carpinus (hornbeam) and Fagus (beech) are very nice varieties to plant.
Evergreen block shapes
Quercus ilex and Osmanthus allow for the best results.

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 low screens of the Christmas Berry, Photinia fraseri 'Red Robin' are available in multiple sizes.
These low screens are suitable to keep in pots or movable trays.
The quality is in the fully natural build-up of these screens (We don't use metal as an additional support for the plants.)
As a replacement for a hedge they distinguish themselves in their space-saving build.
For more information about sizes, please contact.
Screen heights starting from the ground: 120cm / 150cm / 180cm / 220cm / 250cm / 305cm

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.

The Beech is available in green (Fagus sylvatica) and red (Fagus sylvatica 'Atropunicea') as a cube form, or as a block tree, just like the hedges.
Like the Carpinus,this tree easily retains its shape. The pruning of these trees is done at the same time as the hedgerow. Pruning should be done at least once a year.
We offer cube shaped beech in a container and with root ball. It is available in multiple stem heights.
Our blockform beech are always prepped to prevent sunburn.
During winter, the withered leaves remain on the tree. Because these cubehead trees tower above most hedges, they light up like golden lanterns in the low wintersun. Young and older trees are available.

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.

The Copper beech works wonderfully well as a pleached tree. Its properties are similar to that of the Green beech. This red variety is also a marcescent tree. The tree is slightly more sensitive to sunburn which means it is unsuitable for planting in places where there is a lot of sun or light reflection.

Available in screen form.

Combining the red beech with green hedges can be quite striking. The green of the hedges is brought out by the light to dark red leaves of the beech.

This evergreen cube-shaped tree is easily maintained and grows modestly as a tall-stemmed blockform.
This block shape changes colour in spring and shortly after each pruning.
The green blockform becomes a red one, thus immediately changing the atmosphere in its surroundings.

Also this: wrens and tits like to spend the night in this tree as well as in Quercus ilex because they are safe and snug behind the evergreen and ever fresh leaves.

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 pin oak
The pin oak as espalier has a very atmospheric and natural appearance.
The magnificent leaves of this tree produce a beautiful light influx because of the way the leaf margins are incised.
We select trees that are evergreen.
Pleached pin oaks can be used both as a screen and as an espalier (in layers).
Besides the pleached pin oak we also cultivate this tree in a parasol shape (for solar shading control). This tree is very suitable as a natural parasol.
We offer the pleached pin oak as root-balled trees or container-grown trees. We don't offer  bare-root trees because we want to guarantee a tree that grows well..

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.
