What You Need To Know Cabling & Bracing For Trees
At Yonkers Tree Service, we have strengthened and reinforced trees by cabling and bracing for over two decades. Out of all our services, we find this to be the one where our customers know the least about. To sum it up, cabling and bracing is used to restrict branch movement when it gets windy out there. The tree would then become stronger.
As we mentioned before, this discipline in our trade is the one where customers know little about and we would like everyone to know these things about cabling & bracing.
1. Assists in Tree/Branch Failure
Some trees grow something called "V-Crotches" which is a certain type of branch formation. "V-Crotches" are prone to snapping especially under high stress amounts. Cabling and bracing could assist in bringing back the tree's structure to normal by lessening some of the twisting movements caused by the wind. These types of branches commonly snap due to wind.
The "V-Crotch" can be completely prevented properly scheduling a pruning routine for any young trees. Yonkers Tree Service also provides pruning, tree cutting, tree trimming or any other tree service that assists trees to develop strong structures in their early stages.
2. Restores Damaged Trees To Full Health
A tree's structure is so integrated where so many parts work together to make the tree what it is
Sometimes, when one main branch falls or cracks, the remaining main tree branches will be compromised. Implementing a cabling and bracing system, can replace the functions of those lost limbs. This system can increase the life of the tree and help prevent any further branch failures.
3. Prevents Property Damage
By having a cabling and bracing system, anything on your property in close proximity to the tree will be protected. Even the healthiest tree is at risk of having branches or the whole tree falling onto your property, car, house, garage and so on. You never know if lightning or heavy snow will be cause your tree to fall on those things mentioned.
4. Maintenance Is Required
Generally, any tree with cabling and bracing is required to have an annual inspection and for one of our arborists to service it. In order for the cabling and bracing to be functioning well, the mountings and equipment conditions must be up to date. At best, the longest a cabling and bracing system last is 10 years before replacing it.
Even though cabling and bracing works very well for a tree to maintain it's strength and protect property, it is not always the answer to every case in terms of cost and condition. When a tree is too old or too weak, the techniques do not work. Some customers do not want to pay even more to keep a bad conditioned tree cabled and braced. There are always alternatives to salvaging a tree and protecting property.
