Cabling and Bracing

Cables and brace rods are supplemental structural supports intended to reduce the risk of failure of weak branches and multiple stems.

Cables - Generally consist of extra high strength steel and are attached to bolts installed in the upper crown of a tree. They are intended to limit the movement of the supported branches so they are less likely to fail during storms.

Braces - Are thread rod that are installed through unions of weak branches and multiple stems to provide more rigid support from torsion (twisting) forces that can occur in violent weather.

Supplemental structural support systems should only be installed based on a thorough inspection and evaluation of tree structure by our certified arborists. Materials and techniques must comply with published industry standards (American National Standards Institute A-300 Standards). If trees have lightning protection systems, the conductor must be attached to any support cables in the crown. Homeowners with supplemental structural support systems should contact ArborDocs to inspect the system each year.

Do you have cable and bracing needs for your trees?  Contact us today for an estimate.
