On this site you can find photographs of wooden espaliers, mainly in classical structure, meaning those with vertical battening, mostly from Eastern Germany. Depending on their state, the espaliers can be divided: Initially, there are the old, protected vine trellises in the wine-growing area of the Upper Elbe Valley. They are still maintained properly; their rich harvest is often given to press. The wooden espalier on walls outside the wine-growing areas is decayed, oftentimes, if not even torn off, and can at most spread a rest of morbid charm. At last, there are still enthusiasts fixing, or even refitting wooden espaliers. They help preserve a bit of one’s sense of home!
