Tree Staple™ Below-Grade Stabilizers

Tree StapleBelow-Grade Stabilizers

New trees and shrubs need help.
They must remain stable to develop a proper root system. Stake and wire systems require a lengthy installation, need to be adjusted, and must be removed within 12 to 24 months after installation.
Tree Staple stabilizers are…simpler
The unique design of our stabilizers permits quick and easy installation (one person using a simple sledgehammer can install the product in less than 1 minute) and eliminates the need for removal.
Less expensive
Contractors save money by getting more work done in less time and do not have to return to the site to adjust or remove anything. How much can you save on your next project? 
Better looking
Likely the greatest benefit is that the Tree Staple™ system works without being seen. The below-grade feature of the Tree Staple stabilizer means that immediately upon installation, you have a finished, mature look to your new landscape. 
And if the aesthetics alone are not enough of an enticement, think in terms of safety. Tree Staple stabilizers eliminate the danger of exposed stakes and wires that might injure children or pets. 
And kinder to trees
Essentially, stake and wire systems strangle trees (called "girdling"), cause bark damage, introduce unnatural stress on the trunk and inhibit proper growth. Below-grade stabilizing lets a tree move naturally, to grow properly and be more resistant to the forces of nature. Read research showing why Tree Staples are better for trees and shrubs

Tree Staple stablizers come in 4 standard sizes to meet the needs of transplanting 2 inch to 8 inch caliper trees. As a general rule of thumb, stabilizers should extend 12 inches below the root ball. When needed get even more holding power by increasing the size or number of Tree Staples.

NOTE – Your specified tree caliper defaults you into a Tree Staple Model, but what needs to be assured before ordering, is that you confirm the depth of the root ball so that there is a minimum of 12” of the stabilizers below the bottom of the root ball into the hardpan. If not the stabilizers will not properly anchor the tree. See Installation Instructions for more details before ordering.
