The Sweet Gum (Liquidambar styraciflua) is one of our most popular Pleached trees and makes a wonderful choice for pleaching. Unusual and exotic looking star shaped glossy green foliage (similar to an Acer) that turns to brilliant Autumn hues of yellow, orange and red over a long period, interesting corky bark and ornamental seed clusters or ‘Gumballs’ on older trees make this a true all-rounder.
Liquidambar pleached trees will grow in any reasonable soil that does not become waterlogged in winter, these are a low maintenance deciduous plants needing little more than an annual haircut to maintain the shape, best done in Winter.
These beautiful specimens will add a touch of class and bring year round interest to any garden design or can be a graceful and effective way to soften the impact of nearby buildings or structures without shutting them out completely and stealing too much light.
Pleached Liquidambar Trees are available as pot grown specimens for delivery all year round, or as root ball stock which is available for delivery during the Winter season of dormancy from late October until April.

Because of the size of our pleached Liquidambar trees (they are too tall for any courier delivery service!) all our Pleached Trees are delivered by our own transport, direct to you straight from our nursery. We usually use our own Land Rover and trailer and will always call you to arrange a mutually convenient day first. Delivery is still free for these beautiful trees but as they require a more bespoke approach to delivery and we do need a minimum order of £1500 (ex VAT) to cover our costs. (We can often deliver smaller orders with a contribution towards delivery, please do call our sales team on 01580 765600 or take a look at our delivery page)
Pleached Liquidambar trees are available for delivery to addresses in mainland England and Wales.
