In addition to providing the finest semi mature trees, shrubs, hedging and topiary – along with expert advice and guidance if required, we also deliver high quality planting accessories to ensure your trees are afforded the best start in life.

Our comprehensive range of accessories and equipment can only be purchased and delivered with your trees and are not available separately.

Without the right equipment, young trees can face a tough challenge becoming established, strong and healthy. We’ve developed a range that covers all areas of planting, including tree ties, belts, stakes, planting kits, anchoring systems and installation tools. You can learn more about each of our products below, but should you require any further information or advice on choosing the best planting accessories for your project, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.

Tree Ties

This super strong and soft Tree Tie features moulded grooves to prevent damage to the tree bark. The tie forms a figure of eight and threads back into itself, creating a cushion between the tree and stake. It is designed to stretch as the tree grows and can be adjusted easily when needed.

Tree Belt

Made from seatbelt material, it’s particularly well suited for securing trees to stakes, offering exceptional durability and strength. It is 50mm wide to prevent damage to bark and can be secured by nailing.

Round Tree Stakes

Our Machine Rounded Pointed Stakes are designed to support young trees, and having been pressure treated, they offer an extra long life outdoors.

Planting Kits

This is our recommended purchase with any Deepdale tree as it provides you with everything you need to stake and secure your tree correctly, meaning you will have the best possible chance of growing a healthy tree.

Platipus Tree Anchoring Systems

Rootball Fixing System - Plati-Mat

The Platipus® rootball fixing system, including Plati-Mat, remains the preferred method of securing rootballed and containerised semi-mature trees, offering major advantages over traditional systems. Not only is this innovative system easy to install, but it also lacks unsightly guy wires. With five standard sizes it’s incredibly versatile, suiting most rootball dimensions, whilst it’s cleverly designed to provide a greater contact surface area at the top of the rootballed (or container grown) tree.

Here are just a few of the main advantages:

  • Planting at the nursery line
  • Reduced overall installation time
  • A more secure fixing for better establishment
  • No unsightly stakes or timber above ground
  • Suitable for most rootballed and containerised stock

Deadman System – Plati-Mat

This solution is ideal for those who require a traditional deadman system using kerbstones or sleepers as anchor points, the Deadman is designed to meet the needs of a professional, specialist market. It’s well suited for those who wish to plant trees in rather difficult, urban environments where services may be a problem.

When using kerbstones or sleepers as anchor points it’s important to ensure all of the soil is placed on top and has been well compacted before the tree is placed in the pit. This is a fast, efficient and simple method of securing rootball trees up to 12 metres high.

Installation Tools

For use with the systems above Deepdale Trees also provide a variety of essential installation tools including Hand Drive Rods, Power Drive Rods, Load Locking Hooks, Rod Removers or Ratchet Tension Levers. Please enquire at the time of order.
