I bought 4 Jacaranda trees in 24 inch boxes and these were skinny trees
about 12 to 14 feet tall, so I stake them on 3 sides with 8 foot stakes and
pounded them in the ground so they were 6 feet about the ground now. I have
a tree that is 8 foot about the stakes in a windy area so I put 5 foot
extensions on all 3 of the poles (not the center pole) on then so I have 11
feet poles that I tied the trees to at about a 9 or 10 foot height. I say
job well done. Now I have Sissoo trees that I have the same problem with
because these tress are brittle and I need something like this. However I
did not change the center pole because the tree need movement. Now with my
sissoo tree I'm going to leave the center poles alone and extend the two
stakes 5 foot so I can tie them at the 10 foot level. Now the trees are
tight from the ground up for 6 feet and after that they have 3 or 4 inches
of movement. Did I miss anything?
