Description 

Guy fixing kits are available in a range of sizes to suit most high quality tree transplants up to 20m high. These kits are fast and easy to install, offer effective support for trees in highly exposed areas and for trees which require correction against leaning.


A simple drive rod and tension lever is required for installation although powered machinery is recommended for multiple installations and for kits. We are happy to recommend kits G3 / G4 for particular applications and soil conditions.

The annual threat of hurricanes & typhoons has meant that around the world, there is a requirement to provide additional above ground support to trees in exposed locations such as pool decks, raised planters and roof gardens. We work closely with the Client and Landscape Architect to ensure the correct solution is specified. This could involve field trials on-site to test anchor suitability and may result in a variety of systems being specified (i.e. extra depth, 4 leg variants, permanent stainless components). Our typhoon systems have been tested during field trials and installations with no adverse effect on the symmetry or stability of the trees and palms.

Platipus Earth Anchor (Specification)  

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.

Product Dimensions L x B x H (mm) Materials Anchor Cable Lengths
S21 80 x 28 x 25 Aluminium Alloy 0.6m
S41 121 x 41 x 34 Aluminium Alloy 0.75m
S61 171 x 58 x 50 Aluminium Alloy 1.2m
S81 263 x 90 76 Aluminum Alloy 1.5m
B41 310 x 110 x 93 Galvanised Spheroidal Graphite Iron 1.5m

The following anchors are used in our tree systems and are selected according to the size of the tree, the design and layout of the planting area and local soil and weather conditions. Where appropriate, we can test our anchors on site, prior to installation, to provide quantifiable load data. Bespoke solutions for projects requiring a longer design life can be supplied using stainless steel accessories.

What application am I best suited for?

I am ideal for trees planted in earth. I can assist by securing large trees that are already planted, preventing and correcting leaning trees and providing additional above ground support. I have been used previously to provide extra security in areas that may be affected by hurricanes and typhoons. I am often used on palm trees due to my versatile range catering for trees of all heights.
