Top 10 Trees for Screening & Privacy

Creating Privacy with the use of a well placed tree or a row of specimen espaliered frames is what we do best. We have so many options to block unsightly views or resolving privacy issues that we can supply, deliver and plant too should you need us to. Mature trees, espalier trees and evergreen trees are all ideal for screening naturally. Well placed specimen trees can disguise an unsightly view or block a window in a neighbours house.

Position such trees well and they will make an ideal focal point, that they can be enjoyed now and for future generations, we can always assist you with the best options at the right size to give you the privacy & screening that you require.

Screening trees often have a clear stem to reach up to fence panel height of around 1.8-2m with a full head above. This type of screening is particularly useful if you are overlooked by neighbouring properties, would like to draw the eye towards a specific feature, or would like to retain an attractive wall or meet a hedge so as not to feel too enclosed.  We can also supply feathered trees that have full growth from the ground upwards and offer the same screening ability.


Generally, evergreens are preferred for this purpose and can be planted densely to achieve maximum effect, however, planting a selection of trees, if space allows, can provide rich contrast and seasonal interest.

We can supply a range of quality trees for privacy and screening
