Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Purchased this product to stake a small tree I purchased from my local Home Depot store. The instructions were good, the hose segment provided was ok as well. The stakes seem to have been an issue for others but the ground I hammered them into was soft so I didn't have any break or bend. The main issue for me was the provided rope. It's very low quality, and unravels easily making it difficult to feed through the hose and tie. My guess is I'll have to replace it with new rope or twine after the winter. I gave it 3 stars since the price is low so my expectations were't incredibly high. Probably best to purchase your tree kit with separate components.

I was thrilled to find a product that had everything I needed to stake my new baby tree. I know that I could have easily purchased nylon thread, a hose, and stakes individually, but here's the thing: I would have to CUT my hose in order to have the protective portion which rest against my tree. I'm not a fan of purchasing something just to destroy it. I also would have to had purchase FAR more nylon than necessary for the project. It was so nice having everything there and ready to go for such a low price. When compared with the price of a tree, it was minimal. I did, however purchase my own 5-foot stakes, because I live in a windy area, and knew the ones provided wouldn't last over time. But hey, they were included!

Two of the three stakes broke when carefully driving them. Rope is cheap polypropylene, and I doubt it will last a year in the sun. Do yourself a favor, buy some metal tent stakes, rope, and vinyl hose instead.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SteveVA Flimsy stakes but it does the job
I used this kit to stake a 4' eastern redbud. The tree is small and the branches/trunk very thin so I wanted to provide support. The stakes are pretty cheap and one actually broke one by accidentally stepping on it. By pounding it further into the ground, it added more stability.
The directions are simple and installing it was pretty easy. The rubber tubes that protect the tree from the rope are pretty much the size of garden hose. With that, they are big for this skinny tree but I made it work. I left a little bit of slack in the ropes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sue Happy with how this product is performing
Tree was beginning to lean due to fast growth brought on by excess rain. Purchased a staking kit from Home Depot, found it easy to set up/install, especially like the cushioning wrap that secures around tree as it does not harm the trunk.

Stake a small branch tree I purchased from Home Depot, Dogwood.
Just right for that 1/2 inch branch.

The Vigoro Tree Staking Kit was very effective. It was easy to use and cost effective.
