Weakened Tree? Call Us for Tree Cabling and Bracing Service.

Tree cabling and bracing provides structural support intended to prevent weakened branches and trunks from falling. You may need tree cable bracing if thunder, lightning, wind, snow or pests threaten to cause a weak tree to collapse.

Flexible cables made of high-strength steel are attached to bolts installed in a tree’s upper crown. They help limit the movement of those supported branches so they are less likely to fail when facing the forces of nature.

Braces are another tree support measure. Tree braces are metal rods that provide more rigid support from torsional (twisting) forces that can occur in violent weather. These rods reinforce the tree by strengthening weak branches.

Repair Storm-Damaged Trees

After a storm, the first priority is to protect personal safety as well as property where possible. Storm-damaged trees can fall and/or split, land on vehicles or structures and sometimes bring power lines to the ground. Tree cable/bracing is performed on weakened trees that are in danger of falling.

When trees lose their structural integrity, cabling and bracing can help save a tree that is otherwise viable. The benefit is that you may be able avoid having to remove the tree outright.
