Cabling and Bracing




Tree Repair in Boise – A Tree Company – We Can Save Your Trees – Serving The Entire Treasure Valley, Including Boise, Nampa, Meridian, Eagle


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.

Here are two pictures of a split Ash tree repaired by cabling and bracing.  The tree was recommended for removal by four other tree companies in Boise but saved by pruning, cabling and bracing for a fraction of the cost of removal.  The tree is still healthy and standing today.
