Cabling and Bracing

Cañada Tree Care provides cabling and bracing to any type of tree. It’s done to support the tree’s own weight and height.

Sometimes, a tree needs structural support, especially if it grows to a point where it’s no longer possible for it to bear its own weight.

Cabling and bracing is usually applied in big trees with large canopies or multiple trunks.

Their inability to support their own weight is usually worsened during the winter or rainy season. Wet leaves increase the weight of its foliage. Strong winds, on the other hand, exacerbate this problem.

Structural Problems And Tree Health  

Structural tree issues can also occur when the plant has long, heavy limbs that grow downward. And if they’re poorly anchored, support problems can also arise.

Poorly anchored trees are usually seen in trees planted in compacted or shallow soils. Root damage may also cause this problem to occur.

A tree branch or trunk without enough support will cause a decline in their health.

When it fails, it may cause property damage. It can even cause personal injury to the owners or those who come near the tree.

Cabling and Bracing Service of Cañada Tree Care  

Our professionals who will perform this procedure have years of experience in this field. They know the strategic location where cables should be placed.

Most of the time, cables are attached high in a tree. They can minimize movement and breakage of branches.

We’ll install the cable 2/3 of the distance from its weakest area to the end of the branch.

Bracing, on the other hand, includes rods. They’re installed above or below the tree branch that badly needs support.

The purpose of braces is to prevent the branches from moving sideways. They also protect them from spreading apart. To further provide support, they are installed along with cables.

At Cañada Tree Care, we utilize various techniques applicable to the situation. For example, we apply a single cable to some trees while others may need cables set up in a box shape.

Depending on the situation, we use single or multiple rods.

As part of our maintenance procedure, we inspect the cable and braces regularly to check for any damage from wind and other elements.

At Cañada Tree Care, we only use the right equipment in cabling or bracing. Our highly trained and experienced professionals will ensure that your property is protected while they perform the task.

Cabling or bracing service is covered by our liability insurance of up to $2,000,000. Workers Compensation Insurance is covered up to $1 million.
