People often develop emotional connections with their trees. So what steps should one take when these trees suffer damage, lean, or struggle to bear their weight? Tree cabling and bracing offer an ideal solution for those hesitant to remove a favorite tree that poses risks to people or nearby structures.
If your tree is at risk of imminent collapse, please contact Baker Tree Services without delay.
What does Tree Cabling and Bracing Involve?
Tree cabling, or tree bracing, safeguards the structural soundness of a tree’s branches or trunk. This technique is often employed briefly to aid a tree’s recovery from damage or serves as a lasting measure to stabilize a cherished or significant tree that the owner prefers not to prune or remove.
During tree cabling, an ISA-certified arborist from Baker Tree Services first examines the tree to assess its suitability for cabling or bracing and determines the necessary cabling approach. Then, with a combination of braces and cables, they reinforce the branches and trunk to provide support to the tree. In certain cases, depending on the tree’s condition and required support, the arborist may utilize ground-secured support rods.
