The idea behind the Keeper System is to plant trees without tree stakes, using fully bio-degradable bio-plastics produced from residual waste, such as sugar cane, potato starch, cellulose, straw or cotton.
The Keeper System in a nutshell
It has been a proven method of planting trees more effectively, sustainably, and less expensive than the traditional method. It is widely used in various European projects, in particular in Scandinavia and Belgium.
The components of the Keeper system are made of a modern type bio-plastics, Cradonyl®, with the characteristics matching conventional plastics in quality but with no environmental issues.
