TREE BRACING & CABLING
Preservation of our trees is one of our mission statements at Tree Essence. We have placed importance on studying the causes of tree failure and working to prevent that failure Determining the causes of structural failure enables us to hopefully prevent damage before it happens.
A tree may suffer significant damage from any number of sources, commonly severe weather conditions. The leading cause of major tree failure is co-dominant stem fracture, when the multiple trunks of a tree grow too heavy for their own union and weight. This type of twin stem is often structurally unsound to begin with, having a minimal attachment at the trunk union and heavy growth can push a tree past the breaking point. Pruning helps, but trees with co-dominant stems almost always need permanent braces.
Our Arbortists can assess your trees for structural weaknesses and defects and then recommend the best type of cable bracing design for your circumstances.
