With its deeply corrugated, green foliage turning yellow and brown in the autumn, Hornbeam makes a wonderful pleached hedge. Our pleached Hornbeam trees provide an instant screen of the highest quality.
Pleached trees are also often referred to as stilt hedging or hedging in the sky because they consist of a tall clear stem, on top of which a mature screen is grown. All of our pleached rootball hedging is grown by one of our partner nurseries who specialise in training these beautiful trees. We have a great range listed below but if you can't find exactly what you're looking for, just give us a call on 01257 261 243.
The prices listed below include delivery costs providing that our articulated lorry can access the property. If a smaller delivery vehicle is required please call us for a bespoke delivery quote.

Clear stem = the bare stem or 'leg' that the pleached hedge is grown on
Head = the leafy hedge screen on top of the clear stem
Girth = the circumference of the stem measured 1m up from ground level
So, if Clear stem = 2m and Head = 1.8m x 1.2m then the total height will be 3.2m and total width 1.8m.
As well as a fantastic range of pleached hornbeam trees, we also supply quality boxhead hornbeam hedging. Unlike narrow pleached trees, boxhead trees have square, trained heads. It takes a lot longer to train a boxhead tree and this dedicated workmanship is reflected in the price.
Having provided 100s of pleached hornbeam trees to gardens around the UK we know that the delivery needs a bespoke solution. Delivery times for pleached trees can take up to two weeks and the prices listed below include delivery costs. As long as there are no access issues to your property and our articulated lorries can unload without any problems, there is no added charge. If your property cannot take delivery from an articulated lorry we can still deliver to you, using a smaller vehicle, however this would incur a delivery charge which differs depending on postcode and order quantity. Our experienced Sales and Service team will contact you directly to quote for this. We know it’s important that your pleached trees are delivered when you expect them, so as well as discussing any access issues we will also organise delivery for a date that suits you.
These instant hedging units require a fair amount of help on your part once they arrive, we advise that the smaller units require 2 able people to lift. The more mature, heavier units (Boxheads included) require several (4+) able bodied helpers or even better a forklift or similar moving equipment.
All pleached trees are delivered from October -April/May as root balls and can be pre-ordered year round. We can also source containerised pleached trees outside of these months, just call us for more information.
Best4hedging also supply a great range of traditional Hornbeam hedging plants.
