Treeing before lasting

I’ve never treed my boots until the very end; I wasn’t trained to tree them before lasting so it didn’t make sense to me. But recently someone explained that it straightens them up and makes them less likely to twist during lasting. That definitely makes it worth trying! I hope to last these boots tomorrow so we’ll see how it goes.
