More than just a tree...
For many of us, trees hold a special place in our hearts. They are the unwavering structure in the back of your childhood photos or your favorite place to pass as you walk through the park. But just as those photos fade through aging, so do your trees. Although they can live to be thousands of years old, they aren’t indestructible. When they become unsteady, what are your options if you don’t want to cut them down?
Tree cabling and bracing are part of a collection of different techniques used by arborists and technicians to try to stabilize trees. When trees become unstable, they need to either be reinforced or removed. But what causes this? The primary cause is mother nature; wind, snow, and ice can put a lot of weight and stress on the branches and trunks. Another reason is weak roots or dense foliage. And lastly, split or cracked limb structures.
