Pleached Beech Hedge

Evening all, Have just spent the evening casually chatting to a client about how we're going to improve their garden long-term. Their property is called The Beeches and they're after a privacy screen (eventually) so I suggested a pleached beech hedge to go above their existing (knackered) fence. They are very enthusiastic about the idea but money is a factor to a degree. I'm looking for a supplier that can supply large beech trees either on frames or large standards that we can develop ourselves. I have found one site, but £495 a piece is out of the question. We need 12-15 trees in total. 

Does anyone have anything that might be able to help me?

Many thanks.
