Beech Hedging 210-240cm (7-8ft) Rootballed
These tall beech trees are ideal for creating a tall beech hedge without costing the earth. These plants are the taller and more effective way to plant a beech hedge using bare root plants. They are all 210-240cm (7-8ft) tall and come rootballed, that is to say that they are dug straight from the field and are sold with a ball of soil around their roots wrapped up in hessian sacking. They should be planted as soon as possible after purchasing and should be planted in their hessian sacking which will quickly rot away and new root growth can easily push through.
Beech hedging is a very traditional form of hedging and is native to the UK. The first green leaves of the year are synonymous with the arrival of spring and the leaves will remain green until the autumn when they will turn a golden-copper brown colour. Beech, unlike many of its deciduous competitors, will retain its dead leaves on the hedge for most of the winter and they will only be pushed off by new growth the following spring. This helps a beech hedge to give an added level of visual privacy all year round.
These plants will put on around 1-1.5ft (30-45cm) of growth a year after planting and should be trimmed at their desired height when it is reached. Being relatively tall, these plants will come close to achieving immediate eye level privacy, especially if planted in a double row.
These tall beech trees should be planted 45cm apart in a single row or 60cm apart in a double row. The product photograph shows the trees at 45cm spacings to give you an idea of what they will look like after planting but will quickly bush out in the spring with their new growth.
