Cabling a Large Split Tree
Unfortunately, trees can grow in such a large manner that they are no longer capable of structurally supporting themselves. The end result here would be collapse. This is the last thing you’d want to happen for a variety of reasons. The first being, that you’d lose a beautiful object in your landscape and also the property damage or health hazards of such an event occurring. Luckily, our tree care experts at Quality Tree Services specialize in a service known as cabling & bracing which can help contain the structural integrity of a damaged or split tree.
With a combination of cabling rods, braces and pruning meant to reduce the overall weight load on the canopy of the tree, this service may prove to be a viable option for you. It’s not a guarantee for every tree but an inspection is always needed to determine whether it is savable.
The dilemma with many broken trees is, as the tree grows or matures, the weight of the canopy as well as weather factors such as snow, ice, rain and wind on the foliage may be far more than what your tree could handle.
Rather than having limbs or branches that move independently, by attaching cables strategically these limbs may be able to maintain a specific height or clearance above the ground without collapse.
When cracks are found in your trees, attention is needed immediately. This could be a sign of potential collapse. These cracks are usually the result of damage due to severe weather or advanced structural load. The installation of our cables and rods could add years of life to your tree.
