Cabling and Bracing
Cables and Brace rods are supplemental structural supports intended to reduce the risk of failure of weak branches and multiple stems. Cables consist of extra high strength steel and are attached to eye bolts that are installed in the upper crown of the tree, they are intended to limit the movement of branches so they are less likely to fail during a storm or under its own weight. Braces are threaded rods that are installed through the branch union of weakly attached branches and multiple stems to provide for more support.
Structural supports should only be installed after a thorough evaluation of the tree structure. All materials and techniques must comply with published industry standards.
