Pleached trees is the name given to specially trained trees that have clear, straight stems with a framework of parallel branches on top. A formal method, that requires great care and dedication from skilled nurserymen.
Pleached trees can be traced back 1000s of years and were even used as a type of defense during Julius Ceasar's reign. During the 18th century, pleaching became a popular garden technique for creating shaded pathways. Then, in the 19th century the popularity of pleached trees soared and they were used continually by the European elite who favoured shaded avenues and grand allées.
Since then, pleached trees have become a regular with modern garden designers and can be seen in many an RHS award winning garden. Not only do pleached trees look fantastic, they provide instant screening and privacy.
