Tree Cabling & Bracing Service

Cables and brace rods are structural supports intended to reduce the risk of failure of weak branches. Cables generally consist of high strength steel and are attached to bolts installed in the upper crown of a tree. They are intended to limit the movement of the supported branches so they are less likely to fail during storms. Braces are threaded rods that are installed through unions of weak branches and multiple stems to provide more rigid support from twisting forces that can occur in violent weather.

The Benefits of Tree Cabling & Bracing

When one notices a tree stem and/or branches becoming weak, the options before complete tree removal are tree cabling and bracing. Cables and brace rods are installed to prevent a tree from splitting or losing major limbs. The cables and brace rods act as an extra support for weakened portions of the tree.

Cables consists of high strength steel and are attached to bolts which are implanted in the crown of the tree. The cables act as restrictor, so that the supportive branches do not move too much during storms. Braces are connected from weak branches to strong stems for a stronger support system.


What is Tree Cabling And Tree Bracing?

Tree Cabling

Cabling reduces the risk of breaking or splitting. The cables are typically installed in the upper crown or across a weak crotch (the bottom point of connection between two or more tree limbs or trunks). Traditional static cabling systems are made from high-strength, long-lasting steel wire and hardware, and allow for very little movement in the tree. Newer dynamic cabling systems are made from synthetic fabric roping and sling attachments; the “give” in the dynamic cabling allows for more natural movement in the tree.

Tree Bracing

Bracing rods are installed in trees with multiple or co-dominant leaders to reduce the risk of the leaders splitting or to repair splits that have already occurred. The rigid braces are installed directly through the union of the weak branches and stems either as a “through-rod” (where the rod is inserted through the trunk or branch and bolted with a nut on either side) or a “dead-end” brace (where the rod is threaded directly into the tree trunk or branch). Bracing rods are combined with cabling to gain the most stable support.

What type of trees require cabling or bracing services?

Older trees with broad canopies often have lower branches that grow horizontally and have a lot of pressure placed on them, causing them to droop or break. Cabling or bracing is an excellent alternative to removing these safety hazards without compromising the tree’s appearance.

Trees that have grown with more than one main trunk are often subject to structural failure in inclement weather. Cabling or bracing is an easy solution for keeping multi-trunked trees standing for years to come.

Trees with splitting trunks due to previous structural damage are especially vulnerable. Cabling or bracing is needed immediately to prevent complete failure; with cables or brace rods, you can add years to your tree’s life and keep it looking beautiful.


When should you cable a tree?

A tree needs to be cabled prior to a major limb or branch failure. Identification of weak areas in a tree is the first step in the process. The installation time frame may be influenced by species and the season.
