Tree Cabling and Bracing

​​​Have You Noticed Any Large Splits In Your Tree?


Do you have limbs that look like they’re about to break off? If so, your tree is vulnerable to serious storm or snow damage.  If your trees are starting to split apart, you’ll want to consider tree cabling and bracing as preventative measures to keep them from completely failing.

  • Cabling uses a steel cable to reinforce weakening limbs from breaking off.
  • Bracing uses a threaded rod that’s inserted through the crotches of weak branches.

In some situations, a fork (or union) develops what’s known as “included bark.” These are joints that have formed with a layer of bark in between them. This creates a natural fault line that can fail under stress from heavy snow, ice, wind, or their own weight.
