Cabling and bracing is a method employed to extend tree life by improving the structural stability of a tree. In many cases some combination of cabling, bracing, and pruning makes an otherwise structurally defective tree safe enough to remain standing. Not every tree is a candidate for cabling and each tree will need to be evaluated to determine if cabling would be beneficial.
FAQ: Why is my tree failing?
A: Trees often fail due to poor structure which begins when a tree is young. Problems such as a tightly crotched branch union with included bark will often lead to failure as the tree grows and reaches maturity.
FAQ: My tree is splitting, what can I do?
A: A combination of support cabling, bracing, and weight reduction pruning, as prescribed by our arborists, may provide your tree with the additional stability to retain the tree.
