TREE CABLING OR BRACING
Landscape trees are subjected to more structural stress from ice, rain, snow, or wind than their forest counterparts. These stresses, along with poor tree structure, can lead to branch or trunk failure. Tree failure can result in property damage, personal injury, or the health or beauty of the tree may be compromised. Tree cabling or bracing can help reduce the possibility of tree branch or trunk failure.
Arborists use two techniques to give structurally weak trees extra life and support: tree cabling and rigid bracing. Tree cabling involves using galvanized cable to secure two or more tree trunks or branches together. Rigid bracing entails using threaded steel rods to add support to weak branch unions or split tree trunks. Campbell Tree Services has extended the useful life of many trees in Braselton, GA and throughout Jackson County with the use of tree cabling and bracing.
