Cables and brace rods are tree structural supports intended to reduce the risk of failure of weak branches and multiple stems. Trees with poor structure and weak limbs can live longer with help from one of our professionals. This practice is used to help save a tree rather than removing it.
Properly placed cables between limbs can help redistribute the load of weight allowing the limbs and/or trunks to support each other. Bracing rods are often used to support splitting limbs by bolting them together. Installing bracing rods and/or cables offer additional support but do not offer any guarantee they will not fail in the future. For this reason we suggest all braces and cables should have an annual inspection.
