Training/staking Strap/wire/cable sourcing

I’m looking for something to stake some young apple trees with. I’m finding strapping that seems like it would work, but the price just seems ridiculous (even in today’s world) and the quantities are fairly small.

Does someone have a source for a quality, easy to use strapping that won’t break the bank? Before it’s all done, I may l be needing in the 1000s of feet.

Happy growing to all!

I’m thinking my best bet is to use electric fence wire with some hose at the tree and 1x2 stakes in the ground. I’m anticipating the stakes will only be needed for a couple of years until the trees get some girth on the trunk.

Anyone see a problem with this?
