Tree Cabling and Bracing

Trees can grow in such a way that their physical structure can no longer support their own weight. This is common in mature multi-trunked trees and trees with open canopies. If a large branch or trunk breaks, it 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 chance that a branch or truck can fail under its own weight.  Cables can help to redistribute structural stress, and bracing rods can provide support to weal branch attachments.  The us of both cabling and bracing can help with splitting limbs and trunks.  We can determine if your trees can benefit from the installation of cables and bracing rods.

Multi-trunked Trees

By their nature, multi-trunked trees are subject to failure.  Because each trunk competes for canopy space, the limbs and foliage grow away from the center of each other,  placing the weight load on one side of each trunk.  Cabling of multi-trunked trees can reduce the chances of truck or branch failure.

Split Tree Trunks

Trees can develop a split in their trunk as they grow, there are also many times when a tree can be split after a strong wind or storm.  Don’t always assume that your split tree is beyond repair.  Tree removal is a last resort, Split tree trunks can sometimes be rescued using a process called Tiebolting & Cabling.

Tree Bracing

Bracing uses bolts or rods to secure weak or split trunks or branches and keep rubbing limbs together or apart from each other.

Tree Cabling

Cabling is when the attachment of a flexible steel cable is used to limit stress and reduce motion of limbs and branches.
