Tree tubes with PVC stakes withstand 80mph winds
A customer in Florida texted to let me know that while yesterday’s 80mph winds took out mature trees and power lines, they didn’t bother his tree tubes with pvc stakes! Take a look:

My customer sent a follow up text: “Guess the flex of the pvc stakes helps.” I guess so!
