I See This A Lot in Peoples Yards

When planting a new tree in your yard, sometimes it's a good idea to put in a few stakes and brace the tree until the roots have a chance to establish themselves.  The amount of time that each tree requires varies but one thing that you don't want to do is let the braces damage the tree.  Here's a tree that we just trimmed that had never been trimmed before.  Once we got the tree cleaned up it revealed that the wire and rubber hose were growing into the tree and damaging the tree in ways that will effect the growth and health of the tree for years to come.
