Pleached Beech Tree

(Question)

We have done extensive research on the type of tree that we want to pleach to provide privacy down our fence line, but now that we’re ready to plant, we can’t find them! I’m looking for nurseries that sell trees that are specifically growing pleach. We are looking for Beach Trees, any help would be appreciated if anyone knows of specialty nurseries.

Thank you for writing to Toronto Master Gardeners with your question. We make it a practice to  recommend neither individuals nor services. We suggest that you contact Landscape Ontario for nurseries and landscapers. Here is a link to their website: landscapeontario.com.

The trees you seek may not be already trained for pleaching; you or a landscaper may need to do the pruning. For more information about growing and training trees, please see the answer to another pleaching question on our Ask A Master Gardener page:
