Pioneering Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) for 40 Years


The High Line, New York – USA

Platipus Tree Anchoring Systems, including concrete deadman sleepers and engineered soil, were used to stabilize the trees over the green roof.

Tree Anchoring in Kotor Bay, Montenegro

Platipus underground tree anchoring systems were the perfect solution to stabilise large semi-matures trees and palm trees planted in such a high profi le location.

Orchard Lisle Courtyard, London

As a traditional anchor system could not be used, the Platipus Deadman Fixing System (Plati-Mat) was selected. The system utilises kerbstones or sleepers to secure the trees and create the aesthetically pleasing finish to this award winning landscape.

Great Marlborough Street, London

The Platipus D-MAN® cell based system was the ideal solution, given the relatively shallow soil depth in the planters.

Landscape, Tree Anchoring & Irrigation with Platipus Earth Anchors

Since first pioneering the concept of underground tree anchoring in 1983, Platipus have designed, manufactured and supplied systems to secure, stabilize and irrigate trees on prestigious projects as well as thousands of smaller and private sites all over the world.

Some examples of our prestigious projects include:

  • Olympic Games & World Athletics Championships 2017, London, UK
  • Franklin D Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, New York, USA
  • Expo Milan, Milan, Italy
  • The Garden Show, Burg, Germany
  • City Walk, Dubai, UAE
  • Edward Street, Brisbane, Australia

By securing the rootball underground our systems allow for quick root development resulting in very low mortality rates for newly planted trees. A comprehensive range of kits and installation tools are available to provide above and below ground anchoring for standard and semi-mature tree transplants up to 20m high. With continuous innovation we have developed high quality standard tree anchoring solutions for on-grade and on-structure, large palm trees or typhoon locations and permanent tree anchoring situations.
