Tree Cabling & Bracing
Do you need tree cabling ? New Jersey Tree Service LLC is dedicated
to preserve and maintaining the health of your trees.
As trees grow, they can often develop weak forks that can split. To restrict this splitting and prolong
the life of a tree cables are used in an arbor technique called tree cabling. In the case where splitting
has begun, cabling can still be implemented.
During the winter extreme snow and ice build up is common which stresses trees with weight.
A reinforced tree can last through these winter elements and withstand the stress.
Sometimes we see an early snowfall that happens even before the leaves
have completely dropped. In these cases, the leaves act to hold even more snow and
ice causing severe stress to trees. If you have a tree that you would like to protect
it is a good idea to be proactive in order to extend the tree's life.
Besides snow, ice, high winds. Adding cables between major
limbs reduces stress and helps reinforce the tree to withstand periods of strong wind gusts.
Not only does this protect your tree's limbs but it also secures your property from
falling limbs that can damage your home, car, or utility lines.
The crotches in trees can become strained due to wind snow and ice so bracing hardware
is added to provide for structural support.
For larger or aged trees with a split in a primary trunk crotch,
bracing is used to give concentrated support and reduce the twisting stress on the tree.
A metal rod is inserted through the weakened crotch, and supporting cables are connected above it. Depending on where the risk is, threaded bracing rods can also be introduced through multiple tree stems for added support if needed.
