Heavy Duty Tree Planting Kit

Buy King and Co’s Heavy Duty Tree Planting Kit, which contains the essential planting accompaniments to be used when planting a tree. This pack contains two 1.8m (6ft) or 2.4m (8ft) tall tree stakes, tree pad and buckle tie in addition to a crossbar.

An essential part of the planting process, the heavy duty tree planting kits are used to allow the roots to anchor into the ground whilst helping to keep the planted tree in an upright position in windy conditions. See our single stake staking kit for smaller trees.

The 1.8m (6ft) stakes have a 60mm diameter, whereas the 2.4m (8ft) stakes have a 75mm diameter to make them strong and long-lasting. The stakes should be knocked in either side of the planting pit with a post driver or sledgehammer until they are held firmly. Attach the crossbar onto the two stakes before attaching the tree pad and buckle tie.

Please note screws/nails are not included in the kit.
