Tree cabling is a technique used by arborists to improve the structural integrity of a tree. These techniques use cables, bands, rods, and braces to redistribute loads on a tree. While cabling does not make a tree invulnerable to storm damage or structural failure, it can greatly increase its stability. There are a number of reasons a tree might be unstable. It may have split limbs, decayed parts, or bad roots. Most trees grow in a forest surrounded by other trees, which force it to grow upward. Trees planted in yards often have no competition and grow outward, making it more likely for them to develop structural weaknesses. If you have a tree that struggles to support its own weight and needs help, call Clear Cut today. If possible, we will help save and stabilize your tree, preparing it for a healthy future.
