These machine rounded tree stakes are used to keep the roots of the young plants still while they establish. They are suitable for feathered and standard trees.


The stakes are:
- 1.5m x 50mm
- pressure treated for a long life
- pointed for ease of driving into the ground
- chamfered at the top for an attractive appearance


Tree ties should be used to tie the tree to the stake.


Don't use a taller stake than is necessary - the tree should be allowed to flex slightly which will help to strengthen and stimulate the roots enabling it to support itself.


Also available are slightly longer 1.8m Machine Rounded Stakes.


How to stake a tree:


- plant the tree as normal but don't completely back fill the pit
- knock the stake into the bottom of the pit, on the windward side of the tree, as close as possible to the rootball
- the stake should be no higher than one-third the height of the tree
- backfill the hole
- loosely attach the stake to the tree using a tree tie - this should form a figure of eight with a spacer between the tree and the stake to prevent any rubbing
- most ties will need nailing to the stake to prevent them from slipping, buckle ends should be against the stake rather than the tree and should be nailed in place
- check the tree and stake regularly and remove the tie at the beginning of the second growing season, by which time the tree should be securely anchored by its own roots.


For container-grown or rootballed trees, an angled stake can be used instead to prevent damaging the rootball. Put the stake at an angle of 45 degrees, positoned away from the prevailing wind so it is not loosened by the wind.

Delivery

Our bare root plants and cuttings are delivered between November and May (specific dates cannot be guaranteed) but we do encourage early planting for the best results.

Most orders are dispatched within 3-5 working days where stocks are available. If they are not available at the time of order you will be notified and an alternative delivery date discussed with you.We ship to mainland UK and the Isle of Wight (although surcharges may be incurred in some more remote areas). Our orders are generally sent out using a national courier but for local deliveries, we may use our own couriers. Orders can also be collected from the nursery by prior appointment and we are more than happy for you to do this if you prefer.

Our standard delivery charge is £15 plus VAT. This is for a next day delivery service in areas where this is available (i.e. mainland UK). For areas outside mainland UK, such as northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Scottish islands and mainland Europe, we can often offer delivery but will need to confirm the costs of these with you, so please call us to discuss on 01404 811229.  

There's usually no need to wait in for a standard delivery, our couriers will leave it in a safe place for you. If there is somewhere in particular you would like it left, please let us know at the time of ordering. For taller plants or a larger volume (particularly root ball trees), a pallet may be required. We will let you know at the time of your order as this will usually incur an additional fee. 

On arrival you should try to plant as soon as possible but, if the weather makes this impossible, cuttings will remain viable somewhere cold for 4 weeks. A cold shed or outside is fine but if the weather turns warm then put them into a fridge if possible. If you are unable to plant the rooted trees within ten days of arrival then we suggest that you unpack the bale and cover the roots with soil in a shallow trench to keep them moist.

It is important to look after your trees as they mature so now click on After-Planting Care for some useful guide-lines.
