How to Stake a Japanese Maple
We recommend staking your Japanese Maple in the early Spring, around this time your plant will have higher levels of sap and be much more flexible. Here at MrMaple.com we have Staking Guns which allows us to put bands around the tree and bamboo pole efficiently, however this isn't needed at all. Any straight pole will work for staking, and instead of the staking gun you can use and re-use kitchen twist ties! It's highly recommended to stake weeping and laceleaf varities, as it will promote a more upright growth habit in your tree!
