Tree Cabling & Bracing
Trees appear to us to be very strong and sturdy, but sometimes, even trees need support. Trees may grow awkwardly, causing their physical structure to be unable to support growth. Such a tree will eventually experience structural failure if it's supported artificially. Another reason why trees may experience structural failure is when they are by events such as storms. Tree cabling and bracing are processes whereby a tree's structural integrity is improved with the aid of cables and bracing rods. We offer the best tree cabling and bracing services in Westminster, Colorado.
A Second Chance
A tree with an unstable branch, trunk, or root can fall off at any time, especially during stormy weather. The easy decision will be to cut down such a tree, but trees offer too much value. Whatever the reason, tree removal should only be a last resort. With our tree cabling and bracing service, we give hundreds of trees a second shot at life every year. We install cables, bracing rods, and bolts in these trees to provide them with much-needed support and balance. This method of tree maintenance is carried out subtly, and it won't make your tree unsightly.
A tree with a codominant stem, irregular limbs, or included back is a serious accident risk, and it will be unsafe to keep such a tree on your property. But with tree cabling and bracing, a hazardous tree can be made safe again. The components of these materials are very durable; they evenly redistribute structural stress across trees. These same procedures can be carried out on a tree showing signs of susceptibility to weather damage. You will be able to sleep through a storm peacefully when your tree has been cabled and braced. Your trees will live longer too.
Tree cabling and bracing will not only protect your tree from structural failure; it will also protect it from insects and diseases. Cracks in tree trunks and branches are referred to as open wounds. They serve as openings for infestations and disease-causing organisms. Cabling and bracing a tree with cracks will effectively close the wound and keep out pests. This is a complicated procedure, though, and a mishap could worsen the tree's condition. For this reason, you should only hire a licensed tree care company like us for your tree cabling and bracing jobs. We will guarantee your tree's safety.
After the procedures have been carried out successfully, continuous inspection will have to be carried out on the tree. The continuous assessment of the tree's condition will keep us updated on its safety and health. Without ongoing inspections, a cabled tree can become unsafe again in the future. First, the components of the cables and braces will be exposed to the elements all year. This could cause them to wear and become less efficient. Also, the tree's support system will need to be adjusted to accommodate its growth as time goes on. Two inspections a year will keep your tree safe.
