Cabling and Steel Bracing:
Cabling and steel bracing provide support to the trees that have structural imperfections or provide needed support from storm damage. Some trees develop defects such as bark inclusion and splits in the trunk.
Supporting the tree with cables and/or bracing will assist the tree in coping with the defect and help to prevent further damage from occurring, adding many years to the life of the tree. It’s important to remember that these methods may not be able to withstand the full force of Mother Nature.
