tree cabling ctSometimes trees grow in a way that makes it difficult for them to support their own weight. This is especially common in mature trees with more than one trunk and trees that have open canopies. Cables and bracing rods can be used to stabilize a tree, improve its structural integrity, and prevent property damage.

Cables can redistribute structural stress in a tree. Bracing rods can support weak branch attachment. When used together, cabling and bracing can save a tree with a split limb or trunk.

When Cabling and Bracing Should Be Used

The angle of a branch in a tree affects its structural integrity. Branches with a “U” shape are stronger than ones with a narrow “V” shape. Trees with limbs attached at a narrow angle can split vertically because of structural stress or storm damage. Cabling and bracing can stabilize the tree.

As a tree gets older, the weight of the canopy and additional weight from the weather can be too heavy for the tree to support. Cables can redistribute the weight so the branches can support each other.

Mature trees with a broad canopy can have lower limbs that can grow horizontally and become weighed down by growth. Cables can maintain the limbs’ height.

Multi-trunked trees are vulnerable because they compete for canopy space and the limbs put weight on one side of the trunk. If one trunk fails, it can lead to slow-healing damage at the base, which invites insects and disease. Cabling can reduce the risk of structural failure.
