How hard is it to grow straight up? Evidently some tress just can’t figure it out. Oh, there may be some external factors like a larger tree or building shading the growing tree, or prevailing high winds to bend it, but sometimes they’re just stubborn and need a little corrective help.
Enter the Tree Trainer: It has straps that anchor above and below the aluminum brace, and tightening the strap exerts a constant correcting force against the crooked part of the trunk without resorting to stakes and wires.
The Tree Trainer comes in two sizes: a small size for trees 1/2″ to 1-1/2″ in diameter and a large size for trees 1-1/4″ to 2-3/4″. If you don’t correct the tree before it outgrows these sizes, you’re probably too late anyway. You’ll pay about $40 for either size.
