Tree Bracing & Tree Cabling
I can’t accurately tell the number of people who have called us for tree removal services just because their trees are somehow leaning towards their houses and making them afraid of the worst. Many people in my neighborhoods have also been the same thing. We indeed have to be cautious when a tree grows towards your house, but that should not make us go for the elimination method. It is sometimes not the only solution to such problems. Tree bracing and cabling can be ideal to restore the trees’ structural integrity and live safely for many more years.
If you have suspected that your trees are having an abnormal growth or have exhibited crack lines, then the best thing is to call our arborists who will further assess your trees for any growth discrepancies that can make them a threat to you and your property. Lake Alfred Tree Trimming and Stump Grinding Services have professionals who offer tree assessments at a very affordable fee. You can rely on the report given by our arborists to either cut down the tree or reinforce it through bracing and cabling.
This is a process that involves the installation of heavy-duty stranded steel cables that are inserted through the holes drilled on the trunks or tree branches of considerable diameter and then bolted on both ends. This is not only done to trees that have developmental disorders or trees that have been affected by diseases and pests. It is generally to offer more support, and this can be needed for many different purposes. If your trees are the fruiting ones, then you may need to brace them so that they can bear the weight of the fruits. During winter when snowfalls are common, your trees may need to be supported to bear the weight of the snow that will accumulate on their branches. We have seen trees that fail due to the weight of the snow that is added to them. These are just some of the few instances when you can benefit from reinforcing the trees with steel cables.
Tree bracing and cabling is very important. However, you need an expert to confirm that it is necessary if you want to give it a try. Experts themselves should install the cables on your trees as many other factors need to be considered. You cannot manage it on your own because you lack the experience and equipment needed. Maybe, you will argue that you can buy the tools and equipment, but what about the skills? where will you buy them? Don’t force yourself to do what you have no clue about as you can end up in disasters that you never planned.
