Young oak tree support removal & another question
I have two oaks in my front yard and am wondering when the supports for them can be removed. I hate the look of the supports but it won't kill me to let them stay longer if they need it. They are 2 months short of 2 years old.
The link below goes to a picture of each of the 2 trees, along with 3 pictures of some bark damage to one of the trees that occurred last year during the windiest storm of the year. I was wondering if it is anything to worry about or if there is anything I should do about it.
