<h3>What is a Mature Pleached Espalier Tree?</h3>The term 'pleached' refers to trees that are trained to form a screen of branches and foliage a single straight stem. The single stem of our pleached trees are between 2 and 2.2m tall. Planted in rows at set distances, they will form an elevated 'green wall' that can be ideal as an alternative to high fencing. </p>
<p>Espalier pleached trees differ from standard pleached trees in that branches are trained quite specifically along the cane structure in 'lines' to accommodate flowers and fruiting varieties of trees as well as standard leafy species. Having space in between the rows of foliage allows for even development of flowers and fruit ensuring plenty of room to develop and grow.</p>
<p>Mature pleached espalier trees are established trees with full growth development on the cane framework compared to the fresh pleached versions. Having been carefully nurtured and trained over an extended period of time, these lovely specimens feature beautiful, full rows of foliage, some with abundant flowers giving way to fruit as the season progresses. These particular pleached trees offer a varied aesthetic to the standard pleached tree and the flowering and fruiting varieties are particularly visually appealing.
