Espalier Apple Trees
“Espalier” refers to special practices for training trees onto trellises. There are many ways to make your apple 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.
They are 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. All our apple espaliers are Spartan interstems grafted onto dwarf M26 rootstocks. 3 Tier format: branches are at about 1-1/2’, 2-1/2’ and 3-1/2’. 2 tier format: have the top two sets of branches.
