Pleached Hornbeam trees - Pleaching is the weaving branches of multiple trees together for privacy, wind & sound block. Best trees for pleaching are Lindens, Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus), Beech, Apple, Pear, Hawthorn, & Carob. The American Hornbeam (Carpinus Caroliniana) is hardy and holds some of it's leaves during winter to provide a privacy screen year round. Because each tree is trained to have a single stem, there is space below a pleached hedge for other plantings (a hedge on stilts!)
Thyrsostachys siamensis - This is a bamboo that does it all. Highly esteemed for its grace and beauty, it’s construction grade canes are thick walled, straight and strong. Lower nodes often solid. Very compact and vertical with small leaves that create a cloud-like effect. Canes can get to about 40 feet tall in rainy areas, shorter on the leeward sides. Outstanding lumber, edible shoots.
