    Ok. I see the spacing question is answered here. Are they more than a foot from the wall?

    Trees are planted about 18"on center from wall - you will see when you plant the trees you want the root ball to have dirt on all sides.

    It is important when pruning to maintain a 'cant'. Simply put, you want the top to be pruned slightly inward (not apparent to the eye) so that light can penetrate the trees from top to bottom and also so the trees don't become top heavy.

    Columnar Hornbeam - Carpinus betulus Fastigiata - An attractive, columnar tree with dense branches . Clean looking dark green foliage turns yellow-orange in fall. Very good in tight spaces as it can be trimmed and kept to the proper scale for the garden.
