Espalier Trees

“Espalier” refers to special practices for training trees onto trellises. There are many ways to make your trees into works of art, and the trees we offer have already been trained along the same plane in a 3-tier, T-shape, horizontal cordon.

As you continue the training, you can shape trees into a number of designs. Beautiful when grown against a wall, a building or on an existing fence or wires. Trees should be spaced an average of 8-10’ apart. Branches are at about 1-1/2, 2-1/2 and 3-1/2 feet.

Trees will be shipped in special protective boxes. In order to ship the espaliers we cut each the branches back to 8 to 10 inches long.  As your tree begins to grow each arm will put out additional branches. Choose one of the new branches to tie down to your wires or fence to extend your espalier branches.
