Hornbeam Mature Box Head Tree Root Ball

What is a Box head Tree?

Box Head trees are specialist trees, grown with a clear, straight stem and topped with a foliage head in the shape of a box or cube. They are expertly trained and clipped over a number of years onto a cane framework to achieve the distinctive 'box head' shape. These unique trees certainly have the wow factor and are sure to draw the eye in whatever setting they are planted.

Species Information

With deeply veined, dark green foliage which turns brown in the winter and clings on to the branches, Hornbeam is great for difficult positions and poor soil. When used for Box Head Trees, Hornbeam lends itself to the task of pruning into blocks like no other. Because Hornbeam retains the majority of it's leaves during the winter, our Carpinus blocks retain their contours during the winter with their copper coloured leaves.

This large box head tree has been pruned into a tall block with four equal sides of 130cm width and depth, and a height of 240cm. By using Hornbeam, this box head tree has a compact branch structure which is well suited to pruning into straight edges and corners, emphasising the clear line structure of a garden at a natural height.

Delivery Information

Once an order has been placed, we will contact you to arrange delivery. Delivery of all pleached trees is via a large truck due to their size, shape and weight. Lifting equipment will be needed to help unload and move the trees.

Although free delivery via a pallet will show when ordering online, as this is a specialist delivery, a delivery charge is applicable on all orders under 5 units.

For more information around delivery, please call 01257 263 876 and ask for a pleached tree specialist. They will be able to provide costs for smaller orders and advise on lorry type, access required and lifting equipment needed to help unload the trees.

Please note: We recommend that any moving or lifting equipment such as a forklift, is booked for a full day not part day, as we cannot guarantee what time the trees will arrive on site on the day of delivery.

Further information about delivery can be found via our Pleached Trees Information Guide or please call 01257 263 876 and speak to a member of our team who will be happy to advise you.
