Cabling & Bracing
Sometimes, Mother Nature needs help. Like when a tree grows in such a way that its physical structure no longer supports its own weight.
When that happens, your tree's health is in jeopardy. It is also at risk for causing property damage or personal injury. H&L Tree Service can help.
H&L Tree Service has been in the tree services business for 25 years.
Cabling and bracing.
Multi-trunked trees are much more susceptible to failure than trees with single trunks. With multi-trunked trees, each trunk competes for canopy space. They also compete for root space. As a result, the limbs and foliage grow away from the center of the collective trunks, placing the weight load on one side of each trunk. Failure of any singular trunk can create a wound at the collective base that heals slowly and is an open invitation to insects and diseases.
Trees that are prone to vertical splitting include Live Oak, Red Oak, and American Elm. These splits are often caused by structural stress or storm damage. Split trunks need to be dealt with immediately. Split trunks limbs can be cabled to maintain a specific height or to provide clearance above a walkway, driveway, or roof. Cabling is an alternative to removing large branches, which may affect the tree's aesthetic appeal.
Save your tree!
H&L Tree Service will evaluate the structural integrity of your tree to determine the best course of action. The correct combination of pruning, cabling, and bracing can save your tree.
First, we selectively prune your tree to get rid of problem branches. Next, we work to address existing split limbs and at risk limbs, using a combination of cabling and bracing.
Cables reduce end weight and redistribute structural stress. They are used to limit the movement of supported branches so they are less likely to fail during storms. Braces are threaded rods that provide support to weak branches.
