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.

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 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, ...

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

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.

Parrotia_persica_roof_trained.jpgParrotia_persica_roof_form_dakvorm.jpgParrotia_persica_roof_shaped.jpg

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.
