Kits With Ground 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.
Kits Without Ground Anchors
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.
