High-Carbon Rail Steel Stakes

bullet.gif (667 bytes)   Best Angle Tree Stakes offer a full line of different sized  high-carbon rail steel stakes to accommodate your needs. Our stakes are formed into the familiar shape of "angle iron". We offer very small angles, 3/4" x 3/4", up to very large and  super strong angles of   2" x 1-1/2".

bullet.gif (667 bytes)   Do not be fooled by cold-formed steel products that may look similar. Standard low-carbon cold formed angles do not have comparable strength, and they will deteriorate rapidly.  Nothing compares to the strength and longevity of  high carbon rail steel.

When you contact Best Angle, you will be able to speak with someone who has actual experience in orchard support systems. We are knowledgeable about rootstocks and their growth habits, and will be glad to offer you advice on your support needs.


angle size RG series   length*


RG series angle
3/4" x 3/4"
   RG396 8 ft. Recommended for light duty support or supplementary support. We recommend this stake for use with nursery stock, ornamentals, or non-bearing trees. Due to the small angle width, this stake is not available fabricated.
   RG3120 10 ft.
   RG? for other lengths,

angle size PJ series length*


PJ series angle
1-1/8" x 7/8"
   PJ196-OR 8 ft Recommended for light duty support or supplementary support. We recommend this stake for use with wire trellises or for a single top wire system. While this stake is strong, we feel it is insufficient for  individual tree support with bearing trees.
   PJ1118-OR 10 ft.
   PJ? for other lengths,

angle size PA series length*


PA series angle
1-1/4" x 1-1/4"
   PA396-OR 8 ft. Recommended for medium duty support. This stake is popular for very compact rootstocks, such as Bud 9 or M 27, or systems that can be kept compact. This stake also provides excellent use for training purposes on rootstocks that will eventually be self-supporting.

angle size PB series length*


PB series angle
1-1/2" x 1-1/2"
   PB496-OR 8 ft. The #1 SELLER.
Recommended for heavy duty support. Popular for use as individual tree support for dwarf rootstocks with precocity and weak basal strength, such as M 9 and semi-dwarf  stocks such as M 26, M.106, Mark, interstems, etc.  This is a very strong stake that supports tremendous loads, proven reliable through violent storms, and helps compensate for plans-gone-astray. We feel this stake works well for vigorous cultivars (Galas, McIntosh, etc.) and tip bearers (Cortland, Rome, etc.) that magnify support problems.

angle size PF series length*


PF series angle
2" x 1-1/2"
   PF996-OR 8 ft. Recommended for heavy duty support. This is a tremendously strong stake that is often used for trellis systems, in conjunction with our smaller stakes, or top wire systems. We often see this stake purchased to "fix" support problems where other materials were originally used, but have failed under adverse conditions.

*Lengths available:

We normally inventory both 8' and 10' lengths. However, we will be happy to custom run other lengths to accommodate your style.  As far as recommendations on length, keep in mind your intended purpose. Are you looking for support on trees already producing, or will you be tree training in addition to support?  If you are merely "fixing" an old problem and just need to pull leaning trees back up, the 8' stake will do the trick.  If you are starting young trees,  there is a good chance that you will want to tie the leader up, tie the limbs down, and possibly tie up the heavy bearing "droopers". For this purpose, tree training with the fabricated 10' Best Angle stake is the most efficient system we have found.




additional materials



100 meter roll poly-tubing

Strong, durable, elastic,  non-girdling tie material.
Stays pliable in cold weather. 3/16" diameter black surgical tubing. Available in 100 meter rolls

Use this tubing to tie your tree to the stake. Make a figure 8.   Lace the tubing through the hole in the stake then around the back of the stake crossing the tubing between the stake and the tree, then around the tree.

To make an inexpensive dispenser, place the 100 meter roll in a empty gallon jug, then feed the tubing out through the cap hole. Using the jug handle, hang the dispenser from your belt .



training clips
plastic traing clips

plastic training clip - Specifically designed to lock into the holes of Best Angle stakes. Holds 12-1/2 guage wire, tubings, twines, strings, etc. to the stake. Use clips to provide a versatile attachment piont when tying limbs up or down.
Use to position wires when trellising. Attach wires to side of the stake. Clips allow adjustment for uneven terrain and prevent wire damage associated with placing wire directly through holes in the stakes.
