Due to poor growth habits, extreme weather events and massive size, some trees need structural support to prolong longevity. Trees with tight, vertical crotches, splits and cracks in woody tissue, and over-extended limbs are examples of trees in need of these services.
Bracing and cabling both help to limit the movement of weak areas of the tree by means for bracing, the installation of bolts through crotches, and for cabling, the installation of cables in the upper crown. Since these methods do not guarantee the safety of certain defects, it is important to have an arborist evaluate the best course of action for your tree. All of our work meets the industry's ANSI A300 standard for tree support systems.
