Proper Tree Staking
Stake trees with broad, belt-like, flexible material that will not injure the bark, as trees grow and sway! Remove material no later than 2 years. Only stake if tree will blow over in mild wind. I personally do not understand how you could plant a bare root tree at the proper depth and not require staking. Avoid placing staking device in crotches.
