Last fall we bought a 40 acres and set to work rebuilding it into a research farm. We spent a lot of time cleaning it up - removing old debris and digging up metal. We planted over 100 trees. It was for this reason, I planned to use the Orange screw . We have sandy soil, and I was certain our trees would blow over in the wind (heck - the trees were planted as a windbreak!!) Amazingly, they didn't and they didn't need staking. Then we went through a series of canopy adventures where I was certain I would use the screws. I forgot about them during the process and decided to use the stakes that came in the canopy kits. Our canopy(s!!!) pulled out of the ground and smashed themselves into mangled hunks of metal and torn tarp. Yes, this happened more than once and we finally decided to build a more stable structure. You can read about these misadventures at our farm blog (in case you are interested in really stressful hardwork.) Why must we always learn the hard way?
