STRUCTURAL SUPPORT FOR SAFER, HEALTHIER TREES
Trees with poor structure, such as long, heavy branches or an imbalanced canopy, are more likely to split apart or break from high winds or heavy snow. Structural support can keep them intact and make them safer.

Signs that Your Tree Needs Structural support
Over time, many trees (especially those that haven't been properly pruned) develop structural weaknesses, such as:
These are all situations where structural support, such as cabling or bracing, can help protect your tree and save your property from damage.
Cabling & Bracing for Tree Safety & Support
What Is Cabling? Bracing?
Simply put, cabling and bracing are ways to hold your tree together so it doesn't drop branches or split apart.
When structural issues are identified, we may recommend installing a high-strength tensile steel cable in the upper crown of the tree. Cabling prevents branches from moving around as much - as a result, they're less likely to break during a storm. The cables are attached to the tree using bolts installed through the branches.
Bracing involves installing a long threaded rod through several branches or stems where they're weak and likely to split. The rod gives more support than a cable and limits the degree of twisting that can happen during violent weather.
Our arborists use approved materials and techniques that conform to all professional ANSI industry standards.
Will You See Cabling in Your Trees?
In most cases, you won't notice the cabling at all. In fact, cabling may be very difficult to see in your trees, especially if you don't know what you are looking for.
While cabling is extremely strong and does a great job, it is meant to be inconspicuous so it doesn't take away from the natural beauty of your trees.
Does Your Tree Need Structural Support?
Cabling and bracing should only be installed by a certified arborist after a thorough inspection and evaluation of the tree.
If you notice any signs of structural problems in your trees, give us a call at 440-564-1374.
We'll inspect your trees to see if cabling or bracing can help, or if a corrective pruning program is called for instead. Often, a combination of proper pruning and cabling/bracing can help extend the life and improve the safety of important landscape trees.

Our arborists will thoroughly inspect your trees to determine whether they would benefit from cabling or bracing to make them safer and keep them healthy longer.
