Tree Cable Bracing

Tree Cable Bracing is used to support a tree when it has signs of damage, decay, or is a risk to surrounding property. The method is generally used on high-value specimen trees, where aesthetic value would be compromised if you were to remove large sections. Our tree surgeons will also carry out pruning work, in order to reduce overloading on weak areas and prevent further damage to the tree.

The tree cable bracing process involves the installation of cables that are designed to add support to weak limbs – it does not damage the tree further by drilling or bolting the branches. Rods can also be inserted in weak fork unions, usually in conjunction with cables higher in the crown.

Various materials are needed to carry out bracing work, given that each job is different. When at all possible, non-invasive methods are primarily used.

Please note all trees require a thorough risk assessment before any bracing work can proceed. Arboricultural Excellence’s tree specialists will carry this out, ensuring the safety of the tree and surrounding area.
