Cabling & Bracing


Support May Be Required?

In certain situations or during recovery from damage, illness, or insect infestation, some trees may require the additional support of cables to brace them at points of weakness, until they regain full strength again. Cabling involves installing steel cables between anchor limbs to alleviate any strain and help support the tree, reducing stress damage from high winds (and reassuring you of any liability of fallen tree limbs, when the strong Santa Ana winds blow here in Southern California!). For large, weak, or split crotches, bracing provides direct support, reducing torque strain on the tree. A metal rod is embedded through the crotch, with two more cables placed above it.

Our ISA-Certified arborists are knowledgeable in best practices of tree support, applying cabling and bracing where necessary, until your trees are able to sustain themselves optimally again.
