From pleached trees that have a single arch to pleached trees with multiple pleats in an “X,” there are many options. The different teaching styles will require different amounts and types of training. It would be best if you chose a style that suits your garden.

It’s also important to select pleached trees appropriate for the climate where they will be planted. Pleated trees need different amounts of water and sunlight. It’s therefore important to choose the right trees for the environment in which they are grown.
