Tight spaces, narrow or small gardens, driveway plantings, or natural hedging between houses - all require upright, narrow growing trees. We have done the homework for you and here are 10 of the most successful tightly formed trees available.
Skinny, narrow or fastigiate – whatever you wish to call it, you are looking for a tight form of tree that won’t encroach on space. Perhaps you are looking for line and form in a garden, a tall narrow tree for an avenue planting, a hedge for a fence, or perhaps you are simply tight on space! No worries – there is an option for almost any narrow need here.
The Fastigiate tree form is one of our tree guru – Wes Fleming’s favourite forms – allowing a garden to be broken into rooms, add lineal features into a garden or block out a neighbour – there are so many uses for a narrow tree.
“Fastigiate - or upright growing trees can make a really great statement in a garden! Try the very tight upright growing Liquidambar ‘Slender Silhouette’ in that tricky spot beside the driveway and neighbours’ fence - it only spreads a few metres... perfect.” Wes
