Each loop must have enough capability to facilitate expansion of trunk. Generally people just have a stake on one side of the tree but this is not considered as a good practice because it doesn’t allow tree to grow further.

Staking is suggested if the winds and other forces are expected to move the balls of roots within the ground. Your staking must have enough capability to prevent all such forces which creates move because it is presume to be the most harmful things that could harm to a young tree.
