Reduce Stress Damage On Your Trees With Our Flexible Cabling & Braces

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.

How to Protect Trees from Snow & Ice

Snow and ice can pose a threat to trees by weighing down limbs and branches causing broken and damaged trees.

Trees that are unprepared to bear the extra weight need attention to prevent branch failure.

Here are some ways cabling and bracing can help protect trees from snow and ice:

Tree Safety

Tree Safety 101

Sometimes even healthy trees fail, but that doesn’t mean they should be ignored. Weakened trees can be high risk trees, and not all hazards are obvious.

Watch for some of these warning tree signs:

  • Your tree is leaning, buckling or heaving up the soil at the base of the tree
  • An unbalanced or sparse canopy appears with several dead branches
  • Internal or external cavities, cracks or seams of wood occur

A professional tree service can provide a tree health and tree risk assessment.
