The right parasol tree is more than a replacement for the traditional sun umbrella. Your parasol tree determines the atmosphere on your terrace. We provide several options, each with their own specific light incidence. This light incidence is determined by the type, the manner of cultivation and the state of the structural branches.
We pay a lot of attention to the stem height and the light transmittance of the foliage.

A tree is deemed suitable as a parasol tree if it meets certain criteria. Here is an overview of some of the criteria.

We still offer traditional parasol trees but our new generation of parasol trees and natural shade options offer more opportunities. They can be implemented a lot better in any type of garden and provide a good balance between atmosphere and function.

Are you looking for a stylish, atmospheric and low-maintenance parasol tree or natural roof for your terrace?
Look no more, you have come to the right place.

Or are you looking for another natural sun protection solution? Discover the possibilities and please contact us.
Determining the best type of natural shade to go with a design or environment is part of our daily business.

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.

The plane tree as a parasol tree.
The height of the parasol is your choice, it won't change because of the growth of the tree. We grow this tree for all purposes and also in all possible stem heights.
The width of the parasol upon purchase will vary between 200 to 350cm. With wide trees, the last branches are flexible for transport. Recommended planting distance of the parasol plane tree: between 300 and 600cm. We also offer this tree asymmetrically.
Our planes are completely sustainably grown.
The result is a less severe growth and delayed metabolism. No yellow leaves and minimal fluff formation by the selection of plant material and the position of the branches. The branches that form the parasol grow with the stem so there is little difference in thickness between the trunk and branches.
The plane tree is one of the most pleasant trees to spend time under. Its large fresh leaves provide protection against sunlight. Due to the transparent nature of the plane tree leaf, the shade is light and atmospheric. Plane tree leaves are free of insects and other critters, thanks to tiny hairs underneath the leaves. The plane tree has been used since ancient times to eat under, have meetings under, rest under, ...
Nowadays, plane trees serve as a patio roof, awnings and as trees creating shade for parkings, ...

Syn: Platanus hispanica, London planetree, London plane or hybrid plane

A few Cultivars:

Platanus x acerifolia (hispanica) 'Alphens Globe'
This variety shows a somewhat more compact growth.

Not resistent 

Platanus orientalis 'Minaret'
Deeply incised leaves. Not resistent

Platanus 'Digitata'
Italian selection, strong selection met deeply incised leaves.

Platanus 'Mahlburg'
Together with the 'Bloodgood' these are the most interesting and resistant selections.

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.

A specialty product of espaliers: the pleached Liquidambar. Years ago we selected the 'Worplesdon' as one of the most suitable trees for beautifully sustainable pleached structures.

The pleached Liquidambar has a deeply incised leaf. The leaf is always fresh and healthy and has a certain transparency which, together with the deep incisions of the leaf provides a beautiful light influx.

The healthy properties of the tree and leaves also make the Liquidambar suitable for standard and also more specific solar shading control.

The colors of the Liquidambar range from a fresh green in the spring to a beautiful composition of light to dark green in the summer.

The autumn colours are spectacular, they range from light orange pastel shades to a fiery red to deep purple and are perpetuallly changing during this season.

The durability of the tree depends on the manner of cultivation. At the nursery of espaliers, we only grow sustainable espaliers, the new generation if you will.  

Because this tree is one of our specialties, we offer it in standard sizes and deviant sizes.  

Suitable for damp, wet soils and most soil types.

Other names for this pleached tree: pleached liquidambar, pleached Sweet gum.

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.

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.

This ornamental plum doesn't bear fruit. You can expect to see extremely pale pink flowers opening in early spring. They’re populous enough to cover the entire tree, and the leaves have the same colour as the Ghent cuberdon, a typical raspberry flavoured sweet.

If properly pleached this espalier creates a unique atmosphere and background.

The appearance of this tree with its distinct color is soft and neutral. When the sun is low, the leaves provide a unique light influx. It is then that the added value of the tree is made apparent.

Easy to maintain and available in various stem heights.

Also available as a parasol tree.

The parasol Pin Oak is available in several heights. The height of your pin oak is not affected by the growth of the tree.
The parasol pin oak has branches that can bear quite a bit of weight. This allows you, if desired, to create a broad parasol/ area of shade despite having a limited basis.

Parasol Type
We offer the pin oak in several parasol types. These are custom-grown to suit your specific needs.

Stem
The trunk of the Quercus palustris is smooth at a young age and becomes nicely grooved as it gets older. The trunk is quite decorative, strong and has a grayish hue. The root collar is attractive and is given plenty of attention here at the nursery.
Atmosphere
Half permeable to sunlight thanks to the fine tips of the leaves which have deep green playful nuances. Atmospheric fresh shade, a parasol with branches that may hang slightly towards the end. The parasol pin oak showcases beautiful shades of red during autumn.
Maintenance
Annual pruning. Same benefits of a parasol plane if properly maintained.
We also grow this particular oak tree as a natural screen.
Sustainability
We work with an extensive selection without grafting trees.
The parasol pin oak is a durable parasol. Good pruning and long weight-bearing branches that move nicely and are very wind resistant.


Quercus palustris is one of our nursery's specialties. Please contact us to find out if this tree fits into your design.

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.

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 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..
Tree height 150, 180, 200, 220, 250, 275cm
In addition to our standard stem heights, we also grow deviant stem heights.
We also cultivate these trees as extra high screens in mature sizes.
The pin oak as espalier buds in spring, it grows light green, star shaped leaves. During the summer the leaves create a nice effect of depth thanks to the leaf shape and the different shades of green. During the autumn period the pin oak bursts into a unique spectacle of colors.
Contrary to what is claimed, the pin oak is not suitable for all soil types. Please seek advice before planting a pin oak.

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.

Parrotia as a parasol tree is used for specific applications.
Not every type of parasol can be planted in any garden.
When planting in smaller gardens specific measures should be taken.
The tree is native to Iran.

The ornamental value of this tree is primarily the trunk. The shading on the gray trunk of the parasol parrotia gives a decorative effect and this from an early age.

Its canopy is a neutral green with a strong character, similar to the beech.
The beauty of the leaves lies in their discoloration that already starts in the month of August and becomes more prominent towards the autumn.
The parrotia autumn colours range from deep purple to bright red and bright orange.
Just before the leaves fall off, they have a yellow-orange colour.
As I said earlier, the power and beauty of this tree lies in the trunk. For this reason, we offer this tree as a parasol shape, especially in multi-stemmed trunk shape.

The pleached plane tree remains a beautiful espalier.
Pleached plane trees require more maintenance than sycamores. Pruning to restrict growth is not very easy with this espalier.
That is why we recommend this tree for larger gardens only.

The leaves of the pleached plane tree leaves can form a pale-coloured screen. The large leaves give complete privacy shortly after budding. The trunk is covered in beautiful patterns.
The autumnal color is yellow to golden yellow.

Maintenance: The plane as espalier requires a particular maintenance. The mode of growth is important to consider. A poorly pleached plane is not sustainable.
Branches of pleached plane trees (and other espaliers) should never be crushed when pleached as is sometimes claimed erroneously.
Also platanus hispanica (trade name)

The gingko forms a refined and subtle screen with its unique leaves. The green color is quite remarkable.
If you take a closer look at the leaf, you discover a unique structure which tells you more about its genetic origins as a conifer. The ginkgo is a conifer, but behaves like a deciduous tree.
The autumnal color is a lovely and the leaves change colour at the same time with minimal color nuances. The fallen leaves are best left untouched because they are also a feast for the eye.
Ginkgo is cultivated in several types. Planting the correct type in the right circumstances is a challenge.

Maidenhair has medicinal properties, it is often taken as a supplement to enhance mental focus.

This tree is available in multiple stem heights.
Besides pleached for privacy and atmosphere we also cultivate Ginkgo biloba as a shade tree.
