$30 to $100 per plant, our plantings only.We rarely stake any plant. Our Method mitigates the need, so we discourage this practice. Only the strongest acts of God tend to bring harm.Yes, people do still stake a lot of plants (often out of habit). This practice will prevent tipping from most windy events. Even with staking, hurricane-like weather can topple any plant.Staking comes at a price to tree. It is preferable in the long run to sway in the breeze. This constant “flexing” allows the trunk to develop stronger, like a muscle, so the tree can withstand future high winds, ice, and snow. Unstaked trees develop greater caliper, a larger root system, and healthier, undamaged trunks.Occasionally, we may advise staking for:
– plants with a loose base/flare.
– tall plants with small rootballs.
