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. If our planting leans or falls over within two years, we will reset plant at no charge.
