Tree cabling and bracing are vital to the protection of weak branches (and limbs) from damage that may be caused due to severe weather conditions. The proper use of tree cables will help support your trees from violent storms during any season. They are intended to limit the movement of the supported branches, so they are less likely to break during high winds or from the weight of ice and snow.
Trees can grow in such a manner that their physical structure can no longer support their own weight. This is particularly common in mature multi-trunked trees and trees with open canopies. Failure of a large branch or trunk can result in property damage, personal injury, or the decline of a tree’s health. Cables and bracing rods are tools arborists use to protect or improve the structural integrity of trees.
The installation of cables and bracing rods, along with pruning to reduce end-weight can reduce the likelihood of a structural failure. Properly installed cables help to redistribute structural stress, and bracing rods can provide support to branch attachments deemed weak. A combination of cabling and bracing can successfully address existing splitting limbs and trunks.
It is always in your best interest to have a certified arborist assess your trees, pointing out all signs of weakness and where cabling may be needed. Our service is quick, great for the health of your tree and always performed by professionals. Our cables are very strong and will need minimal maintenance. However, they should still be inspected periodically to ensure the tree & area remains safe.
