Cabling and Brace rods are supplemental structural supports to reduce the risk of failure of weakly attached limbs or multiple leaders.
Cabling consists of high strength steel cable that is attached by lag bolts in the upper crown of a tree. The cables will limit the movement of supported branches and reduce the chance of failure during storms.
Braces are threaded steel rods that are installed through unions of week branches and multiple leaders to provide more support against twisting or splitting forces that can occur during a storm.
There is no guarantee that a week branch union won’t split, but cabling and bracing can help reduce the risk of losing a valuable tree. Click on the button to learn more:
