Tree Staking 2.0

I posted recently about the importance of staking new tree plantings.  I saw this interesting staking mechanism recently.  Here's what I like...the loop gives the tree plenty of space to sway in the breeze.  This mechanical movement will help the roots to grow strong and the trunk to strengthen.  Supports which allow no movement will create weak trunks and roots.

It will be imperative for this support to be removed as the trunk grows in girth.
