Staking Rule of Thumb

4 months ago
last modified: 4 months ago

A generally accepted rule of thumb for staking a newly planted, young tree appears to be tying it loosely to a stake for a year (assuming normal upright growth habit, not talking about snake like growth habits and the like)

Anyone wants to elaborate on the rule of thumb?

What tests do you do to keep it on the stake for longer than a year?

What tests do you do before untying it from the stake?
