tree anchoring & irrigation

Platipus Anchors pioneered the concept of underground tree anchoring over 40 years ago with the original Rootball Fixing System utilizing Percussive Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®). Building on the success of this product, Platipus now offers a comprehensive range of on-grade and on-structure tree anchoring systems for every planting situation. In addition, they also offer landscape solutions designed for irrigation, rooftops, and over structure applications.

Typical Applications

Tree anchoring with Platipus Ground Anchors

Tree Stabilization With Earth Anchors

The Platipus rootball fixing system, with Plati-Mat®, remains the preferred method for securing rootballed, airport and containerized semi-mature trees. The ease of installation and lack of unsightly guy wires makes it the first choice for customers. Over the past four decades, we have developed an extensive range of unique underground tree anchoring solutions to suit most tree planting situations including above ground guying. Available in 3-Leg and 4-Leg options.

With the ever-increasing desire to create beautiful landscapes in challenging urban environments and roof gardens there are many occasions where a standard tree anchoring system cannot be used due to the location of buried services or shallow planting areas. Platipus have developed permanent tree anchoring systems, using stainless steel accessories, available in a wide range of options to suit individual applications.
