Cabling and Bracing
Bug infestation, severe weather, old age and location are all factors that can contribute to deteriorating tree stability. Trees stability is provided through its trunk. When the trunk has become compromised due to any of the aforementioned factors, its structural integrity comes into question. Arlington Tree Services provides cabling and bracing solutions for your trees structural requirements. Stop looking at your tree wondering if it might fall down and take a step towards the certainty that it’s safe and stable.
While many trees may only look like they are at the beginning stages of structural defect, by the time you notice the external issues; the internal damage may already be done. Our affordable tree services combined with our service professionals can diagnose your trees dilemma and provide solutions to maintaining its structural integrity.
Figuring Out if your Tree can be Saved
Most people are not tree professionals; as such it can be hard for property owners to diagnose the problems occurring within their own tree. Deciding between tree removal or cabling and bracing can be almost impossible without a professional inspection. Depending on the extent of the damage, and your desire to keep the tree, our service professionals can usually devise a cabling or bracing solution that meets your needs and requirements.
Figuring out whether your tree will benefit from cabling and bracing is just another tree service we provide. Inspecting the interior of the trunk of your tree will help us deduce the right option for you. Most damage can be rectified, but must be done in a timely manner. If you’re looking to save your tree, don’t wait to contact us. Leaving a damaged tree too long can cause irreparable damage and often result in necessary tree removal.
Like many of our customers you’re probably not yet ready to say goodbye to your beloved family spruce. Maybe you planted it with your children, or perhaps it’s the tree you took your baby’s first photo under. The sentimental value of your tree is something we understand, and if you want to save it we want to do everything to help.
Cabling Vs. Bracing
Cabling and bracing are two separate methods of preserving your trees structural integrity. Cabling refers to the act of installing cables higher up to help the trunk support the trees canopy or upper weight. Bracing refers to the installation of rods, at a much lower level to assist in load bearing. Deciding between cabling or bracing is something that we can help you with. We’ll give your best options for the best outcome for your tree. We’ll work with you to determine what you prefer aesthetically and suggest what treatment option will work best for your type of tree. Hard and soft woods respond to cabling and bracing differently, and our diagnostic team will be able to explain the different approaches on your very first meeting. Cabling and bracing is accomplished more easily, and is less time consuming in the Spring, Summer and Autumn months. Contacting us before the snow falls is always a great idea.
