Tree Bracing & Cabling Pros
Tree cabling is the process of installing steel hardware into the trees. It is done to improve the structural integrity of the trees thereby extending the lifespan of the trees and reducing their risks of failure. California’s annual climate may sometimes be very unpredictable as it may come with a mix of storms or heavy snow during the winter. This causes external stress to the tree, which may lead to structural failure and causing damage. Trees that have weak trunks and branches are more susceptible to breakages during adverse weather conditions.

Why is tree bracing and cabling very important?
You might be asking yourself about the need to install the support cables to a tree. But even before we give you an answer, let us ask you this question, what do you do when you have a bone fracture during an accident? Did your doctor not reinforce it by some means so that you can walk again?
We know you answered yes, and if that is so, why not do it to your trees that have structural problems? Trees may also have structural defects resulting from disease and pest attacks. Some may have disproportional growth where the foliage weight is much on one side than the other. This is why your tree bracing & cabling are important to support such trees. These trees deserve to live longer and should not be health hazards.
What is tree bracing and cabling all about?
In both techniques, a hole is drilled through the tree trunk or branches with a sizeable trunk. The difference comes in what is to be installed after the drilling. In Bracing, a steel rod is inserted into the hole and bolted to offer firm support to the tree while in cabling, threaded steel cables, which are more flexible than the steel rods used in bracing, are installed and bolted on both sides to offer support to the tree. By so doing, the trees with weak branches and split trunks can live for more than 10 years again.
