Designed in direct response to the need for eradication of invasive alien plants, the Tree Popper is a robust, uncomplicated tool that can be used by one person. A simple concept of leverage has been used to ensure the complete removal of unwanted vegetation providing .a permanent solution to a long standing problem.
Manufactured from mild steel, the Tree Popper comprises a lever/handle with a rubber grip and a foot piece firmly held together by a circlip. These two basic parts form a pliers-like jaw that is used to grip the plant stem.
Operation is simple with the jaw hooked around the plant stem, force is exerted on the handle causing the foot piece to lever the plant and its roots completely out of the ground. This simple manual operation has eliminated the need for high-speed blades and other potentially dangerous mechanical operations. No skill is required when using the Tree Popper and women and children can operate it safely.
The Tree Popper is harmless to the environment, and facilitates the permanent removal of alien vegetation without causing any pollution. Use of this rugged implement also eliminates the need for herbicides and other chemicals. It is suitable for use in areas that are inaccessible to other mechanical implements and has been used successfully on mountain slopes and other difficult terrain.
With only one simple moving part, the tool does not require any form of maintenance and is available in three different sizes to suit the individual.
