Stake your claim on a healthy root system! Staking is recommended for dwarf and semi-dwarf fruit trees, trees in windy sites, trees that develop a leaning habit, and trees planted in shallow or loose soil. Homemade stake systems are an option, but they’re not necessarily optimal. The commercial-strength rubber support lines in this kit allow the tree to sway slightly, just as nature intended, which promotes the growth of a strong and evenly distributed root system. Rated for trees up to 2" in trunk diameter. Lines are easy to unhook for pruning, weeding, mulching, etc. Kit includes supplies for staking one tree: three 4½' rubber lines (¼" diameter), three metal hooks, three 11" metal stakes, and installation instructions.
