Tree Cabling And Bracing
Trees never really stop growing over their lifetimes. They keep growing taller each year and their branches and leaves stretch out just that bit more each day. So, it is unsurprising to hear that sometimes trees can become too overgrown and their weight can become too heavy to maintain. This leads to many trees getting weaker and to wounds appearing where various limbs split. Eventually, these things can lead to tears and that can threaten part of the tree to rip away from the trunk, only to come crashing down below. Nobody wants to have to deal with the costly circumstances that might come from that and that is why you need to be protecting your tree as best that you can. At West Valley Tree Service, we can help you do just that through our great services in tree cabling and bracing. When you find weaknesses and tearing in your tree, we can be there with the professional response that solves the issue for the long term.
Tree cabling is the first step in a successful cabling and bracing service. Designed to help transfer the center of gravity to the center of the tree, this technique entails securing opposite limbs to each other using metal cables. These cables will be tightly wound around the tops of weak limbs, close to the canopy so that they can pull back on the heavy weight of the dropping canopy. Then, as they are secured to one another, they will be much better poised to support the other and bring strength back to the base of the tree.
Following on from this, braces can be fastened into the base and near the tear in the tree. Once the cables have relieved sufficient strain, this will be a much easier job and will ensure a great deal more support from the foundation of the tree. Our team uses the same high standard of metal for the braces, which will be secured through the material of the trunk. The addition of these braces solidifies the position of the tree and creates a much more supportive system, in conjunction with the cables.
