The installation of cables and bracing rods are important to protect and improve the structural integrity of a tree. Properly installed cables help to redistribute structural stress, and bracing rods can provide great support to branch attachments deemed weak. A certified Arborist can best determine if your trees can benefit from the installation of cables and bracing rods. Cabling and bracing can be used on mature trees, multi-trunked trees, split trees, and sometimes even young trees. Mature trees often carry more canopy weight than a crotch can bear. Once winds, snow, heavy crops are present the likelihood of a split increases. Our expertly installed and strategically placed cables can allow the branches to support each other and increase the structural integrity. Multi-trunk trees by nature are a great candidate for cabling. The competition for canopy space in a multi-trunk tree encourages the trees to grow outward which places the majority of the weight toward the outside of the trunks. This substantially increases the risk of a structural failure. This failure is likely to be a split at the base of the trunk which creates a wound open to disease and insects. Cabling these multi-trunked trees before such damage has occurred can considerably improve the structural integrity. Split trees are often caused by storm damage. These trees are often hazardous and need immediate attention to prevent complete failure. We have highly skilled employees that can advise whether cabling and bracing is a feasible option or if removal is necessary for safety purposes.
