Privet Trees (Ligustrum)
Our customers often buy Privet trees (Ligustrum) as they are a cost effective Screening tree. A raised hedge is possible by using trees that have been specifically produced for this requirement. These trees will have a clear stem of around 1.8-2m and then a crown forming above this height that will sit just above your 1.8m fence panel.
