If a tree is being planted in an urban environment an underground anchoring system is often felt to be a better system than using wooden stakes. The Tree Anchor Support Deadman System utilises heavy objects such as sleepers and kerbstones to weigh down the tree and act as anchor points. Well compacted subsoil should then be added over the sleepers and kerbstones for additional weight and security for the tree. This is a tried and tested system which has been used in many cities, rail, utilities and urban projects across the UK.
