I had the craziest thing happen yesterday. We use fiberglass poles to stake our trees in the field. Most people don’t know this but trees grow by moving in the wind. The movement stimulates the roots to grow and more roots sends more energy to the top, which causes more growth. When we put bamboo stakes they would snap in the wind. When we put aluminum stakes, they bent in the wind and then stayed bent making the tree grow crooked. So we put steel stakes and the trees stayed still. Too still. When we finally bucked up and bought the expensive fiberglass stakes we saw a huge improvement in growth. A tree that took 3 years to harvest took 2.5 years. Well worth the price of the stakes.
Here’s the rub. Literally the rub. I was removing hundreds of stakes from trees yesterday that no longer needed stakes. The trees were nice and straight on their own. The coating evidently had worn on the stakes leaving fiberglass dust that got all over me and my clothing. My first instinct was thinking of my lungs. But the real issue was the little particles got in my skin. For the last 5 hours it feels like a million needles poking in my fingers, hands, arms, and chest. It doesn’t wash off and hurts like a bitch. From what I read it will take several days to work its off or out and do not get it in your eyes or you can really damage your cornea. I changed all my clothes immediately and washed up but still hurts. Eyes good so far (although as i type this they are hurting as I worry about them). When I told my brother after that I was removing stakes. He said “Make sure you wear gloves and glasses, otherwise you’ll be hurting for days” Great post advice on the posts.
Follow up: A sweaty run and another shower seems to have gotten rid of the dust…..and pain.
