Our 13 oz. Stark® Tre-Pep® Fertilizer (22-24-12) helps promote new growth and development in young fruit trees.

Never having any experience with planting fruit trees, I didn't want to take any chances that I left something out. This kit has all of the basics covered and I am glad I chose it.

First time planting an apple tree. I extensively researched planting techniques. This kit included everything recommended to plant a fruit tree successfully ... minus the shovel. ;)

Looked like a good way to get the apple trees started.

My neighbor didn't, he lost his trees to rodents last winter.
I also figured it as an investment to promote the success of the trees.

Great product to get your tree off to a great start.
James O on Apr 25, 2016
It makes sense to protect young trees and I have a HUGE deer problem where my orchards are located. I have lost tens of trees to deer in the fall during the rut when they look for apple trees to rub their velvet. These tree kits will provide a first line of defense against rubbing and individual fences help keep the trees too far from horns to be destroyed.

Want the new trees to have the right planting kit to assure the best chance for success and healthy trees.
David H on Apr 9, 2016
Why not start off your trees on the right foot? The kit is actually a pretty good price @ $18.16 and look for any benefit from the professionals to get the tress off on the right foot.

I have used these products in the past and had very good success
Charles W Coles C on Mar 6, 2016
I live in an area where the growing season is fairly short and the conditions rather harsh. By adding these to the initial planting, I hope to assure the trees have a better chance of survival.
Karin P on Mar 2, 2016
This was a gift. I wanted to make sure the cherry trees I ordered would get off to a good start.

want to give new trees every chance to survive
Geno S on May 15, 2016
Should I get one of these to use with a redbud I'm thinking of ordering, or is it mostly for fruit trees?
Nancy on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I planted 3 fruit trees last year at this time and I purchased the tree starting kit with all three trees. I thought the expandable mulch brick was great and helped to keep the tree roots moist. The fertilizer was easy to mix and it seemed to jump start my trees. All three trees are now a year old and have survived the winter and are thriving. I just went out and pruned them yesterday. I think the starter kit would help any tree you would plant. I love Redbud trees so good luck with your tree.
How do i protect trees from deer?
Jeffrey H on Feb 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We were able to keep deer from eating one of our young trees with deer repellant, but you have to keep spraying it after it rains. The other one we made a fence with 4 sections of trellis ty wrapped in a box around it.
Everything I have read says to not add any amendments to the growing hole for the tree. Why do you sell a coco fiber brick in your kit?
Basgall R on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The coco fiber helps loosen hard, clay soil and adds water-retaining fibers to sandy soil. It also resists compacting and remains porous for air circulation, so it is a great, sterile growing medium. If you have been advised not to amend your soil, then you probably don't need the coir brick in your planting holes, but you can still use it as a medium in raised garden beds and other gardening purposes in that case.

Tree success
I bought this tree kit when I got my trees. One for each tree and I used everything in the kit when I planted them except the fertilizer which I used some of in the spring the fertilizer can be used in your gardens also. The tree gaurds go on easy and protect the tree trunks. Kit comes with easy to follow and read directions

Stark Tree Success Kit
We purchased a Methley Plum tree with this starter kit and it's amazing. The tree and starter kit arrived in November. It's the beginning on March in Austin, TX and we have a ton of leaves on it already. I'm looking forward to delicious plums in a couple of years.

Just the right things to get me going
After selecting Stark Bro's fruit trees to purchase (an apricot, a peach collection, and a pear collection), I though that the TREE SUCCESS KITS would be ideal to ensure that they had a good start. I was very pleased to see my peaches blossoming after three years and thoroughly surprised to see blossoms on my three year old pears this Spring.

I liked this kit, included everything I needed for fruit tree success. I have cats, so the tree protector was very valuable.

Stark Tree Success Kit
The tree success kit was helpful to me as a home owner who doesn't have a lot of experience planting trees. I had never worked with the fiber brick before, but it really helped fluff up my heavier clay soil, and get the cherry tree that I purchased off to a good start. The tree-guard gives me a little peace of mind when I string trim around the tree, and the fertilizer is another addition that is helping this tree succeed. I would recommend this kit to novice tree growers who are planting a few trees.

I bought this and it really wasn't needed. I have a back yard with no pets. The fertilizer is good I guess but the kit wasn't needed for me.
