Below are images of various wooden trellises, most of them the classic wooden trellis of Germany (i.e. with vertical rather than diagonal lattice structure). There are two main categories of trellises depicted here: 1) typical espalier trellises from the wine-growing regions of the Upper Elbe Valley which were used for trellising vines against walls and facades. They are maintained in the traditional way, the rich grape harves being used for winemaking. 2) The wooden espaliers on house walls outside the wine-growing areas, which are generally disappearing (or are in various states of decay) and can at most create a bit of melancholy charm. But-- there are still enthusiasts who restore or refit wooden espaliers such as these. They help preserve a bit of one’s sense of home!
