Sometimes a tree needs a little support

Cabling and bracing are different methods to secure damaged or weakened areas in a tree. Cables are installed approximately 3/4 of the way up the canopy using either a static rigid metal cable or a dynamic flexible cable typically made from polyethylene. Brace rods are installed into the stem of the tree by first drilling through the tree then screwing in a threaded rod. Each has its preferred application which can be explained and implemented by our trained arborists.
