When one notices a tree stem and/or branches becoming weak, the options before complete tree removal are tree cabling and bracing. Cables and brace rods are installed to prevent a tree from splitting or losing major limbs. The cables and brace rods act as an extra support for weakened portions of the tree.
Cables consists of high strength steel and are attached to bolts which are implanted in the crown of the tree. The cables act as restrictor, so that the supportive branches do not move too much during storms. Braces are connected from weak branches to strong stems for a stronger support system.
Before performing such a procedure on trees, a professional arborist should be contacted. Please call Clearview Tree and Land at 888-808-4777 today!
