Lakewood Products has developed three planting spades specifically designed for plantation forestry work.
The Pro-Planter lite spade was developed on request from an Australian company which sells Pro-Pruner products. This design is based on Australian forestry planting requirements and customer feedback . These were first introduced in 2017 and are selling well.
The Planting Spade - Pro-Planter Lite V2 - Light weight strong planting spade – revised design based on user feedback.
The Pro-Planter standard spade has been designed and developed to meet New Zeland forestry planting requirements.
All spades have a metal collar around the base of the 'D' handle to add strength and durability.
While these spades were designed for plantation forestry work, they are also idea for other large planting tasks such as riperian protection planting, native bush restoration planting and orchard planting.
Spades are made in New Zealand.
