The Easy Way to Stake a Tree

  • December 28, 2020

    We don't vaccinate ourselves against everything in the world because it helps our immune systems grow stronger and more resilient to infection as we grow older. The same applies to young trees experiencing wind and inclement weather. These external factors help trees grow strong and develop sturdy root systems. Which means that the majority of the time, newly planted or young trees are fine on their own, and grow without complications.

    On the other hand, sometimes it is necessary to provide temporary stabilization during a tree's first growth season, especially for trees growing on slopes or in wide open areas, or for trees with heavy canopies and small root balls. But without proper staking, trees can endure a wide range of damage, including death.

    If you have newly-planted or young-growing trees on your property, it is wise to consider tree staking to ensure they grow tall and strong for years to come. Continue reading to learn the truly easy way to stake a tree. All you'll need to get started is a few inexpensive supplies and a little time set-aside to get the job done.

    What You'll Need:

    • 2 Tree Stakes (per tree)

    • 2 Staking Straps (per tree)

    • Sledgehammer

    You will need two stakes and a set of straps for each tree you intend to stabilize. It is best to use flat tree straps because they distribute pressure more evenly and have more surface area, which does less damage to the bark of a young tree. If you do not wish to purchase pre-manufactured tree stakes, you can make your own using two 6 foot long, 2x2 pieces of lumber.

    As for DIY tree staking straps, use 12 inch wires housed inside rubber hosing. A sledgehammer is important because it is among the only tools that can deliver the force needed to drive the stakes into the ground. You can purchase a quality sledgehammer at any local home improvement or hardware store for under 25 dollars.

    Getting Started

    Once you have gathered all your necessary tools and supplies, you are ready to get started. Begin by placing both tree stakes on each side of your young tree. Be sure they are 15 to 18 inches away from the trunk to avoid hitting the root ball.

    Next, use your sledgehammer to drive the stakes into the ground. Be sure they are at least 18 inches deep. If the ground is too solid, soak it with water and try again. Do not use too much water because it can drown the root ball. Use just enough to soften the top layers of soil.

    Tie the tree stake straps 6 inches above the section of the trunk where the tree can fully support itself on its own (where it starts to bend or lean from its own weight). If the tree stands upright, tie the straps anywhere you like as long as it is above the halfway mark on the stakes. Be sure the straps are secured tight, but do not tie them too tight. You want the tree to sway just a little in the wind because it encourages strong root growth.

    Never keep your trees staked for too long. One growing season is all the assistance they need. So remember to untie them in a timely-manner to encourage natural tree growth and self-strengthening. You can, however, keep the stakes around your trees to protect them from lawn equipment and foot traffic.

    Talk to your local tree care specialist about tree staking methods and advice when in doubt. They have the tools, training, and knowledge to guide you in the direction of healthy tree care.

    What you said made a lot of sense. But, think about this, what if you added a little content? I mean, I dont want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added something to maybe get peoples attention? Just like a video or a picture or two to get people excited about what youve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your blog come to life a little bit. india tourist visa
