Trees are resilient and it can occasionally be easy to forget about their care. Sometimes trees are staked or guyed up to support them when the tree is young or newly transplanted. But many times those stakes are left and forgotten for years. In those cases, the neglected items can cause damage to the tree. As seen below, trees have grown around many objects, often to the detriment of the trees’ health and longevity. If you need to put something around your tree, just make sure it is removed in a timely manner.
