Kradl: The Simple Tree Support That Helps Your Trees Grow

$11,699

Kradl is the first simple-to-install tree support that helps your trees grow as naturally as possible without having to disrupt or restrict the tree via invasive methods. Kradl’s purpose is to help your tree grow with minimal contact (no ropes or tape). With Kradl’s three telescoping legs and support ring, you’re able to safely aid in the proper growth of your trees and enhance your landscape.

What’s even better? Kradl can be quickly and easily installed by just one person and comes with everything you’ll need for proper installation; all you’ll need is your hammer.

 

 

 

 

 

According to the Arbor Day Foundation, the first stage of a tree’s life (called Infancy) is when they are most vulnerable and susceptible to the environment around them. Restricting a tree’s vital stage of growth via ropes and other harmful material can ruin the future of your tree. This is why Kradl is so successful; because it protects your tree during this vital stage with minimal contact and NO invasive products.

 

  

 

 

  

 

 

The concept of free range of motion and root development for a tree was introduced to us in 2009, and it just made sense to us, along with the many others who tried our basic prototypes. However, it still lacked the equally-important second need.

Then it happened, Kradl really began coming to life in 2016 to today. Our team began to feel and realize that there was a solution anyone could install. I went through several designs to eliminate the frustration of piece-mealing products from the tree section of the hardware store, to keep from hauling your tool chest around the yard, and to be better than buying a kit with cheap supplies that needs knots (and a knowledge of them). Strapping, cutting, tightening, untying, breaking cheap stakes, re-stringing, and strapping directly to the tree were all things that needed to be done away with.

With Kradl, now it’s SUPER easy to CLICK together, it looks great, it allows movement and growth, and it only touches your tree when needed…..goodbye, overgrown straps. Not only that, but it’s affordable and built tough. Now we all have the option for a healthier, simpler, non-intrusive support that our trees need. THANKS SO MUCH for making this a reality.

We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make Kradl a success.

We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t give a dollar or purchase a Kradl, if you’re a supporter of Kradl, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!
