Pin Oak growing thin and spindly?

    I have a pin oak that I bought at big blue last year. When I got it, it was about 8' tall and required staking every few feet. This year it has grown to at least 10 feet but the main trunk still seems too spindly and fragile to support its own weight and couldn't possibly survive in high winds which we frequently get here in Northern Nevada.

    Did I pick the wrong tree for my location or am I just being too impatient?
