Trees can be planted in the right place and cultivated to grow strong and healthy. Based on this, if planted improperly or grown too quickly, they may need help to support themselves properly. If you decide to remove a tree from your property, there are ways to do so without damaging your lawn or landscaping.
We at Chippers Tree Services can help you assess the health of your trees and offer a quick, efficient and affordable solution for your tree cabling and bracing needs. That’s why we provide free tree risk assessments, free quotes, and free estimates.
How Does Tree Cabling and Bracing Work?
The cabling and bracing system work by increasing resistance to wind and ice forces acting on the tree. The cables help resist bending moments caused by high winds, while the steel post anchors help prevent uplifting forces caused by ice heaves.
Tree cabling involves wrapping steel cables around the tree trunk and attaching them securely to stakes pounded into the ground using steel posts. The steel posts are typically set in concrete but can also be installed directly into the soil. This method is commonly used on large trees with shallow root systems and requires minimal excavation. In addition, it keeps the tree from moving or falling over when high winds or storms are blowing through town.
Tree bracing is similar to cabling except that it uses metal rods instead of cables. We install metal brackets around the base of the tree attached to posts dug into the ground. The bracket wraps around the trunk and attaches with bolts or spikes. This helps keep the roots down to prevent wind damage during storms. It also strengthens weak branches, helping them bear more weight than they would otherwise be able to carry, thereby preventing them from breaking off under stress.
