These tree ties are ideal for helping with tying and supporting plants. Keep plants straight with the adjustable tie making them easier to brace with a stake. The flexible material allows for more stretching than a plastic material which is a great benefit to young trees allowing them to develop their own resistance to wind loads. The ties are therefore stronger as they can move with the plant or tree instead of rubbing. Can be used on trailing plants to encourage growth in a particular direction. Use with small shrubs or with sapling trees for protection and early support to direct growth. The plastic is rot-proof for all year round support for many years.
