Platipus Rootball Fixing System

RF2P Platipus Tree Anchoring Kit

The Platipus™ rootball fixing system, including optional Plati-Mat™, remains the preferred method of securing rootballed and containerised semi-mature trees.

The ease of installation and lack of unsightly guy wires makes it the first choice of customers. Over the past two decades, Platipus™ have developed an extensive range of unique underground fixing solutions to suit most applications.

The RF2P Platipus Tree Anchoring Kit is suitable for 4.5m-7.5m tall trees, 25cm-45cm girth.

The Plati-Mat™ allows secure positioning of newly transplanted trees, whilst offering major benefits over traditional root support systems. Available in four standard sizes, the Plati-Mat™ can be tailored to suit most rootball dimensions. This significant development allows faster installation and provides a greater contact surface area at the top of the rootball or container grown tree.
