Portuguese Laurel 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. Planted in rows at set distances, pleached trees 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.

Fresh 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 yet will grow into beautiful mature specimens with full, thick screens.

Species Information

Portuguese Laurel (Prunus lusitanica) pleached trees are a beautiful evergreen variety of pleached and a newer species in terms of pleaching. Portuguese Laurel has smaller, darker and elongated, pointed glossy green leaves than Cherry Laurel and magenta coloured stems that add a touch of colour. In late spring/summer, small white flowers adorn the tree which attract a number of pollinators followed by small red fruits that birds simply love.

Portuguese Laurel is exceptionally hardy and is suited to most soils and climates. It grows at an average rate so trimming is infrequent. Once fully grown, it will have a denser apperane due to its smaller leaves therefore ideal for privacy screening or creating shade, but will be an elegant offering in any garden.
