DetailsCategory: Rootball Guying & Tree Ties
The ArborGuy tree guying system has many advantages over traditional staking and is suitable for large root-balled trees. Discreet and effective, this underground guying system holds the root ball in position by driving three tree guying anchors into the base of the tree pit and then fastening a ratchet strap.
The ArborGuy ‘deadman anchor’ tree guying system is suitable for hardscape and softscape tree planting applications and is ideal where there is a risk of underground utilities in the immediate vicinity of the tree pit. As shown in the diagram, deadman anchors (heavy timber or metal base plate) are placed in the base of the tree pit in a triangle shape to secure the wires to. For each of the three cables, loop the D ring end of each cable through the wire loop on the opposite end to create a slip knot noose. This noose is then positioned over the end of each of the three deadman anchors and tensioned up in the center. Once this has been done in the center of each of the deadmen (three times), the nylon webbing passes through the small loop on the end of each cable and is ratcheted up tight over the top of the root ball.
