Tree cabling and bracing is a proactive and preventative technique to support a tree with poor or weak structure.
It is commonly used to reduce stress damage on your tree from high winds, weight of ice or snow, and heavy foliage.
At Davey, we install flexible steel strand cables and braces to help strengthen weak branches or limbs.
Your local Davey tree doctor can help you identify weak points and examine bark or large codominant stems, which can be signals of tree weakness that need tree cabling and bracing.
Maintenance following tree cable and brace installation is minimal but also important, and the hardware should be inspected periodically by a professional arborist.
