Seasonal care for trees & shrubs: Staking or guying

SeasonalCare_22x28_seasonsSeasonalCare_stakingguyingSeasonalCare_22x28_key

Staking and guying of trees is rarely needed and is only necessary when the tree will not stand up on its own.  These practices may be necessary for 1-3 years while roots are growing and beginning to stabilize the tree.  Check attachment points on the stem every 3 to 6 months, loosen if necessary and remove within one year of placement.
