We do wrap 5-6ft tall trees in the tubes. You can wrap all the branches if you wish, shouldn't hurt the tree. We usually trim some branches back to the main beam (mostly the lower branches). You want the tree to focus its energy on growing up, not out. Tubes will help with this tremendously.

The nice thing about the above mentioned tubes is they come with reusable zip ties. We will unwrap the tree, trim the tree, then reapply the tube. We will do this once every year or two so the tree spends more of its energy growing up than out.

Here is another site that provides some knowledge and insight on the importance of tree tubes for protection, growth, and acorn production. Careful if you actually order any trees from this place as they are located in Mississippi and the tree zones are areas of concern.
