Espaliering means growing a tree flat against a surface.

What is meant by espaliering a fruit tree is when it grows flat against a surface. It can be grown in small places, such as against a wall, and it will thrive even if its roots are underneath sidewalks or driveways.

Since many fruit trees must be planted in pairs, espaliered fruit trees can be planted close together, providing pollen for each other, yet taking up little space.
