Thigmomorphogenesis results when plants are damaged repeatedly by wind, water or even deer, or mechanically supported for longer than they should be supported. The plant becomes dependent upon the support and doesn't develop strength on its own. Trees should not be staked unless conditions warrant staking.
If trees are staked and the supports are kept in place for longer than one season, they become dependent upon the staking mechanisms for strength. This dependency may result in weakened trunk strength, unusual root growth and potentially other abnormal growth.
It is advised to remove the staking, typically after one season to avoid thigmomorphogenesis.
