Frequently asked questions

How do I put my Tree Tags/Tree Bracelet/Tree Huggers on a Tree?
All of Tree Tags are easy to install!  Attach the spring through one of the holes on the plaque, wrap it around the tree and hook it to the the other side of the Tree Plaque.  Two band size options; 6 " & 24 " are offered for each Tree Tag so you can place on newly planted trees or existing/mature Trees. Spring Expands as the Tree Grows!!!
We also have a great YouTube Video showing you how simple it is!

Why are Tree Huggers® made of stainless steel?
Stainless steel is the only metal that will last forever and does not bleed into the tree. Brass & other less expensive metals could cause harm to the tree.  Stainless steel is completely safe and friendly to the tree.  Our steel is high grade - better than what your car is made of! Our Tree Bracelets and Championship Markers are made of weather resistant acrylic.
Will the patent Spring hurt the Tree?
Not a chance!! The stainless tension spring encased in plastic gently grows with theTtree so there is no pull on the tree. The spring expands as the Tree grows and can be placed on any size tree up to 65" in circumference.
