When a tree is planted should it be staked?

Although it is sometimes necessary to stake trees to keep them upright and allow establishment, there are some adverse effects of staking.  Allowing a small amount of movement can help root and trunk development.

Of course, the worst effect of staking is the possibility of trunk damage from the staking wires or ties.  Staking materials usually should be removed after one year to avoid “girdling” the tree.
