Cabling and Bracing

Cabling and Bracing


Trees can often be compromised by poor structure or damage. In these cases, cabling and bracing strategies are the only alternatives to removal.

Cabling is used in the upper canopy to provide support for limbs that would otherwise break off or split the leader to which they are attached.

Bracing is a more invasive procedure that is commonly used to fasten together splits in the trunk and larger wood.

“A tree is a living thing and its integrity and stability changes over time. Don’t assume that a tree that has survived ten severe storms will necessarily survive its eleventh.” -National Arborist Association.

The heavy rains and winds of spring can cause trees to crack, split and uproot. Heavy rains saturate the soil so deeply that when strong winds come, tree roots cannot stay firmly planted in the ground.

Because of storms, trees often get uprooted and may sometimes fall on a roof or on a vehicle, causing extensive and expensive damage.

Sometimes the trees become unstable and subject to falling.

We will remove the trees which have already been uprooted or ones that have become unstable. We will do this without causing any further damage to your property. We have the experience and capability of removing dangerous storm-damaged trees.
