Staking a weeping Japanese maple

16 years ago

I have a three-year-old 'Green Mist' which I kept staked last year in order to make sure it would keep an upright leader before doing the weeping thing. It's now about 2 feet tall. Can I remove the stakes, or do I need to keep making them higher to keep the trunk upright? Sorry for this ignorant question, but I've never grown a weeping small tree before. Thanks!
