London Plane 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

London Plane (Platanus x hispanica or acerifolia) pleached trees are a popular deciduous tree similar to a Sycamore, thought to be a hybrid of the American and Oriental Plane. They are most noted for their large, thickly textured, five-lobed pointed leaves not unlike a maple leaf that turn a brilliant orange-yellow colour in autumn. The tree also has unusual green-grey bark which develops large scales that peel to reveal a creamy-white bark underneath creating an attractive camouflage effect. In spring the tree flowers in spherical clusters on a long drooping stem developing into fruit made up of hundreds of small seed-pods that disperse in the late autumn and winter winds.

Used extensively in urban areas, the London Plane grows quickly and to fairly large proportions and is very tolerant or any soil type and weather as well as acting as a pollutant absorber to some degree. All these characteristics make this tree a popular choice, particularly in London itself where this species makes up over half of the trees in the city, thus earning it the name 'London' Plane.

Delivery Information

Please note that specialist delivery is required for this product due to its size, shape and weight.
