Good Neighbours: Do Pleached Trees Need My Neighbours' Permission?

While formal permission might not always be required, maintaining positive relationships with your neighbours is key when thinking about planting pleached trees.

Open Communication

It's crucial to engage in open communication and collaboration with your neighbours before planting pleached trees. This proactive approach can help prevent potential disputes down the line. Discuss your plans with your neighbours, especially if the pleached trees may affect their views, access to natural light, or privacy. In many cases, involving them in the decision-making process can lead to a harmonious outcome.

Mutual Agreement for Boundary Planting

If your neighbours are supportive of your plans, you might consider planting pleached trees right up to the property boundary. This not only saves space but also creates an attractive garden underneath. However, it's essential to mutually agree on this approach to ensure a positive outcome for both parties.

Consider Pruning Access

When planning the placement of pleached trees, keep in mind the need for maintenance, including pruning. Ensure there is enough room to access the trees for trimming and attaching them to a frame if you'll be maintaining them yourself. Proper planning can make the maintenance process smoother and less intrusive.
