Trained Trees for Screening

Trained Trees for Screening

Trained trees for screening have become very popular over the last few years. The idea for a top-worked screen on a clear stem works both practically and aesthetically, particularly in more formal settings where space is at a premium. Due to the growth density and leaf retention of many of the trees used for this purpose, deciduous trees like beech and hornbeam have become very popular. In August 2010, I took a trip to Belgium and Holland to check out the options and quality of pleached and espalier trees for screening. The items listed below are available from November to April as rootballed stock.
