Cabling & Bracing

Cabling and bracingCabling and bracing are processes that restore or improve the structural integrity of a tree that is worth preserving. Individual limbs or an entire tree may be cabled and braced.

To brace a tree, first fasteners are attached to the weakened limb and the main trunk. Using ropes or chains, tension is applied to the weakened limb. Heavy duty cables are then prepared and attached to each fastener to provide the correct amount of support for the weakened limb.

While all of this sounds like a relatively simple process, it takes a great deal of technical expertise and experience to know how to go about it in a manner that protects the longevity of the living tree and the safety of those around it.
