Live stakes make purchasing a good number of trees much more economical for the buyer. They are live cuttings that are taken from mature shrubs or trees. By planting these live stakes a gardener can be assured that the plants should all grow at approximately the same rate and should be the same size when fully mature. It will take a bit longer to get them to full maturity but when purchasing several of these together for a windbreak or border, it is well worth the time. They will require a bit of extra maintenance until they are established but should not require much after that. The wonderful state of Pennsylvania has become one of our top 5 buying states and we appreciate all the orders and the business that they give our company. As a way of saying thank you and catering to you just a bit, we have created this category of live stakes. These plants are all plants that will reach their full growth potential in the climate zones of Pennsylvania. It is our hope that by having to look in only one category for live stakes that the browsing and selection process will be more convenient. Please let us know if you find this method of shopping enjoyable by leaving any comments in the remarks section at checkout. We appreciate the state of Pennsylvania and look forward to working with the many buyers there.
