When cabling or bracing a tree, there are some key things you need to know about the process.
1) How do you know if your tree needs cabling and/or bracing? This can be a tricky question to answer without seeing the tree in person but some of the signs that your tree might need cabling and/or bracing include: leaning over an area where you don’t want it too, being in an area that is close to a structure or home, having dead or broken branches, and/or being in an area with high wind speeds.
2) How does cabling and bracing work? Cabling works by attaching a series of cables to the tree trunk (usually the upper crown). These cables are then attached off site on surrounding trees or other support structures, and are used to limit the movement and prevent failure of the supported branches during storms. Bracing is similar but instead uses threaded rod help trees withstand strong winds by providing more rigid support from twisting forces. Bracing is also done to prevent excessive strain on the cabling system. It’s important to know what type you need, cabling or bracing.
3) What time of year should cabling and/or bracing be done? Bracing cabling is best done in the late fall or early spring, though cabling could still need to be performed during other seasons.
4) Sometimes however a tree is just too diseased or rotted. In these instances cabling and bracing may not be enough and you may need to consider trimming the tree or removing it entirely.
