Gwen needs a new stake

Last summer, I duct taped another section of bamboo to support the Gwen avocado’s new height. The tree is growing steadily and is need of a new stake after the bamboo stake gave way.

Untied from the stake, the young tree cannot hold itself upright. It is further made a little heavier by the rock used to train one of the branches downward.

The new stake is a pecan branch. Pecan is a hard wood and is the ideal stake.
