How The Platipus Tree Anchor System Works

 

There are three steps to the installation of an anchor system:

DRIVING THE ANCHOR

Driving a Platipus tree anchor using a sledgehammer

REMOVING THE RODS

Removing the drive rods after installing a Platipus tree anchor using rod removers

LOADLOCKING

Loadlocking a Platipus tree anchor using the Plati-hook

Our Percussion Driven Earth Anchor (PDEA®) is a unique, modern and versatile device that can be rapidly installed in three steps using simple hand or powered tools. The cutting edge design ensures fast and easy installation and when fully loadlocked the anchor is immediately ready for use.

These systems are specifically designed to provide security and stability to the transplanted tree for three to five years whilst the roots establish themselves. Thereafter, key elements of the system will degrade to allow unrestricted root growth and the remaining parts may be recycled.
