best time of year to remove tree stakes

I don't recall anybody ever telling me if there's a better time of year to remove tree stakes on "deciduous" trees. I tell folks to wait until the leaves fall (late fall)....this way there is less wind resistance. Am I wrong or what? (and I don't mean trees that obviously need the stakes out a.s.a.p.) What do you think? thanx

removing tree stakes

Yesterday, we had 60 - 70 mph winds all day long. 15,000 homes lost electricity in the Des Moines area. Trees down, etc. When to remove tree stakes & guy wires was never part of my college education, but it should have been. It's just common sence to wait until the foliage drops before removing tree stakes on new plantings. Thanks.

so are you saying that you had some broken trees and/ just up rooted??? is the brace damage worse than the laying over damage??? and is there a long term effect that you would speculate on

tree damage from 70 mph winds last Sunday

Hi treegal -- I haven't seen any staked trees down since Sunday. It's mostly limbs broken off mature trees. Most folks have not yet cleaned up the mess cause they work during the week. Should be nice weather here this coming weekend, so people will have a chance to get out in their yards.

We had the coldest temp so far this fall last night (23 degrees), so trees like mulberries dropeed all their leaves within hours today. That's autumn in the Midwest. :laugh:

Thanks for the reply treegal :waving:

Trees should not be staked

Trees do not need stakes. Stakes do more harm than good. Remove immediately. Some restrictions may apply
