Tree Stake Kit
Measure 3 Feet from base of tree and hammer stake into ground at a 45° angle. Repeat using the other 2 stakes placing them in a triangle around the base of the tree.
Tie a knot in the rope 6” from the end. Wrap the end of the rope around the trunk about 4-5 feet up from the ground just above the first branch. Tie the rope back to itself just under the first knot. You will now have a fixed loop around the trunk of the tree.
After securing one end of the rope to the tree, extend the opposite end of the rope through the hole in the tree stake.
Pull slightly to add light tension to the rope and tie a knot around the tree stake to finish connection to the tree.
Repeat steps 2-4 with the other 2 ties. This will anchor the tree on all 3 points. Stand back from a distance to make sure your tree is straight from all sides. If not, adjust tension at each tree stake until tree is straight.
The tree staking kit will ensure your tree will grow straight. No adjustments to ties necessary. We suggest removing after 1 year.

Stake set up
Easy to use and high quality stakes. Pretty cool!
Good Tree Stakes
Just what we needed to stake our new rising sun redbud tree. They seem strong, the green tie is extremely strong like a seat belt. I can probably reuse it when I'm done staking this tree.
