This is the only tree support we've found to save our young fruit trees during strong monsoon storms. They are easy to setup and still allow the tree to have some movement.
A fruit tree ""must have
May 20, 2010 | By Mike
I've planted many a tree (fruit and otherwise) and these are, without a doubt, a must have for all those considering trees, not only just the heavy bearing dwarf fruit trees. Easy to use, keeps them in a nice vertical position without having to go through the hassle other bracing methods require. Couldn't be happier. Granted, they're not cheap but I won't risk my time let alone the cost of the trees, themselves. You won't be sorry you bought them.
Great flexible support

I have used these Tree-Mate-O posts for several fruit trees and I am very happy with them. They allow the tree to move some, which is supposed to improve trunk strength. They work with a standard T-post or U-post. The rubber bands last years, and you can buy replacements online.
