While many homeowners are proactive about keeping their trees healthy, a tree can sometimes fall victim to disease or other issues. Trees that lose bark, for example, can be susceptible to invasion by bugs or parasites. This, in turn, causes the tree to use valuable energy to fight off these invaders rather than retain it for its growth and health.
The best way to deal with this is through regular maintenance, which typically entails inspecting the tree’s trunk and limbs to ensure they are free from cracks or other injuries. In some cases, however, more drastic measures may be necessary.
Tree cabling and bracing is the process of securing a tree’s trunk to its supporting structure. This helps support a tree’s health and appearance and prevents severe property damage from extreme weather conditions.
Reliable and Efficient Tree Cabling & Bracing Services
Chippers Tree Service offers tree cabling and bracing services, so your tree grows strong and stays healthy.
- Tree Cabling: Cabling is a permanent method of bracing a tree against wind or ice damage. It involves wrapping steel cables around the tree trunk and attaching them to a concrete anchor buried in the ground. This helps keep your tree from falling over or splitting apart in high winds or heavy snow.
- Tree Bracing: Bracing is another form of wind protection for trees by adding support to weak branches and trunks to prevent them from splitting or breaking off during storms or high winds. It can be used for temporary fixes until a permanent solution like cabling can be put into place, or it can be used as a permanent solution if you don’t want to invest in cabling right away.

When Should You Cable Your Tree?
If weather conditions are likely to cause sufficient stress on your tree to make it vulnerable, cabling it before winter is a good idea. In most cases, it is better to have the cables installed in October or earlier so that the cables will settle before snowfall begins.
