Espalier Kit – For Trees & Fruit Trees

Watch the video below to see how you can espalier a tree with the Heavy Duty Espalier Kit – perfect for attaching trees and fruit trees to timber fences and Walls (timber, brick or concrete).

Best Espalier System for Trees & Fruit Trees

With this kit you will get all the components you require to install a 4 wire ladder espalier set-up as shown in the diagram below. (Wire not included) The heavy-duty installation is for heavy loading espalier landscaping for fruit trees and any vines or foliage producing a seasonal harvest. The Lockjaw system allows for high tensioning of the wire over a short distance, with re-tensioning made easy for ongoing maintenance.

This system can be used for fixing onto timber fences or concrete, block or brick substrates using screw plugs. For heavy-duty use either 2 mm stainless steel wire rope or 2 mm soft wire.
