The Platipus rootball fixing system, including Plati-Mat®, is a preferred method of securing rootballed, airpot and containerised semi-mature trees. The ease of installation and lack of unsightly guy wires makes it a popular choice.

Over the past three decades, Platipus has developed an extensive range of unique underground fixing solutions to suit most applications.

Plati-Mat® allows secure positioning of newly transplanted trees, whilst offering major benefits over traditional root support systems.

Available in five 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 rootballed or container grown tree.

Benefits include

  • Planting at the nursery line
  • Reduced overall installation time
  • More secure fixing creating better establishment
  • No unsightly stakes or timber above ground
  • Suitable for most rootballed, airpot and containerised stock
  • 4 leg options available for larger trees

Platipus can discuss and recommend rootball fixing kits for particular applications and soil conditions.
