Tree cabling & bracing is the science of mechanically joining two parts of a tree to improve the overall structural integrity of the tree. A couple common structural weaknesses in trees in the Springfield, VA area are V-shaped branch unions or trees with multiple trunks. Trees with these characteristics are the ones most commonly damaged in storms. Having a Springfield, VA tree service install a tree cabling & bracing system is one of the best ways to protect high value landscape trees and reduce the potential for storm damage to your greatest landscape asset - your trees!

Many Springfield area tree services install tree cabling & bracing systems using seven-strand, galvanized cable and attachment hardware. The tree support system is not an unsightly improvement to your landscape. A tree cabling & bracing system is usually installed high in a tree where it is hardly noticeable. In fact, the tree cabling system needs to be installed high in a tree in order to apply the leverage necessary to hold the tree together.

A tree service can’t guarantee a tree cabling & bracing installation will prevent a tree from being storm damaged. The Springfield, VA area receives more than its fair share of severe weather and if enough pressure is exerted on a structural weak spot in a tree it will fail. However, in many cases, a tree cabling & bracing system can at least extend the useful lifespan of the tree in your landscape.

If you are not sure if tree cabling would benefit your landscape call a local tree service. Many arborists in the Springfield area offer free tree inspections. Their advice will give you peace of mind and may save you from having to remove a storm damaged tree.
