stake newly planted orange tree?
I recently planted a 7 gallon Navel orange tree. It is approx. 4-5 feet from the root ball. The bottom half of the tree is fairly straight, from there it deviates slightly. Is it necessary to use a stake with a tree of this size? I read it's better to let the tree sway with the wind and settle naturally.
I have a stake in it now, but there is quite a bit of distance from the stake to the tree.
