Hornbeam Fresh Pleached Tree Information

What is a Fresh Pleached Tree?

The term 'pleached' refers to trees that are trained to form a screen of branches and foliage with a single straight stem. The single stem of our pleached trees are between 1.8 and 2.2m tall. Planted in rows at set distances, they will form an elevated 'green wall' that can be ideal as a green alternative to high fencing. Pleached trees are often used to screen unsightly buildings and can be grown above an existing wall or fence. Used in this way pleached trees can extend the height of a privacy screen to 3 metres or more. \n\nFresh pleached trees are younger trees with less growth development on the cane head structure than fully mature versions. Being less mature, they are however more cost effective options but will grow into beautiful mature specimens with full, thick screens.\n

Species Information

Hornbeam pleached trees are an exceptionally popular variety of pleached, gracing many formal gardens and urban gardens alike. Similar to Beech but with a deeper veined leaf and a more defined, serrated edge, Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) has vibrant green foliage forming a fairly dense habit that is ideal for providing privacy screening and shade. Even through the autumn and winter months, Hornbeam leaves will turn brown but cover will be retained as some leaves can remain on the branches until new growth pushes through in the spring.\n
