Why Cabling and Bracing
when trees have branching that has been compromised or is a bad habit of the tree. Or if the limbs or branches are split or cracked and or areas of the root system is starting or has been decaying there is a risk of failure in the structure of the tree. trees that produce heavy crops also add to the failure of the tree structure. In proper pruning can also lead to failure. when the weak areas fail large trees, trunks or limbs and sometimes even entire trees can come crashing down.
Weak limbs and tree structures can often be saved to prevent future or further damage with cables and rods. They will both offer support for the weak structures. When the bracing rods are placed properly they support splitting limbs by bolting the limbs together. When cables are placed correctly between tree trunks they can help redistribute the weight allowing the limbs and trunks to support each other. when the cables and or rods are installed they offer a lot of support but they do not guarantee they will not fail in the future. All trees can fail for any given reason at any time.
Inspection of Trees
When using cabling and rods to support a trees structure the hardware will need to be inspected annually since it can be damaged by natures elements. the normal movement of most branches and or trunks can sometimes cause the cables and hardware to wear all depending on the circumstances.
