Features & Benefits

Specifically aimed for use with Forestry (square) tubestock:

• Increases efficiency and ease of planting.
• Makes a planting hole the right shape and depth so that trees grown in tubes can be easily planted
• Allows the positioning of the root mass close to the soil so that there are no air gaps. This means that little or no watering in is necessary, as the main aim of watering in is to eliminate air gaps in disturbed soil
• Reduces transplanting shock, ensuring good survival rates when using good quality tube stock, weed control and correct timing of planting
• Allows the use of pre-emergent herbicides as the actively growing roots are placed below the zone of herbicide which has been sprayed on to the soil surface for ongoing weed control
• Can be used in light and heavy soil types
• One person can plant at least 400 trees per day
• Has a hard wearing stainless steel head
• Can be used to apply fertiliser tablets to established plants, placing them deeply in the soil where the plants, rather than the weeds, will use the fertiliser
• Can be used for transplanting volunteer and direct seeded seedlings by coring out the plants, tubing them, taking them to their new location and replanting them.
• Used by farmers, contractors, land care groups, community and school groups, agriculture and forestry departments and councils
• Can be used in heavy compacted ground when ripped in the previous dry season
• Ideal for use when using herbicides or mulch for weed control
• Can be used without cultivation

Application

Used extensively by various industries including:

• Revegetation and land management
• Large scale contract planting
• Native plants grown in square forestry tubes
• Used by farmers, contractors, land care groups, community and school groups, agriculture and forestry departments and councils
