Cabling and Bracing

Tree cabling and bracing project by Atlas Tree to protect the longevity of an old tree

Tree cabling and bracing is the installation of flexible steel strand cables and braces in trees. The purpose is to reduce stress damage from high winds, heavy foliage, or “weak” areas. These stress points can result from a lack of pruning, or incorrect/inaccurate pruning. The main objective of tree cabling services and tree bracing services is safety. At Atlas Tree, we work to ensure the safety of the property and the safety of the valuable tree.

As certified arborists, our goal is to help strengthen weak branches or limbs. We do this so that they are better able to withstand severe weather, improve their longevity, and reduce potential risk.

Tree Cabling Services

The two main types of tree cabling, include, invasive and non-invasive.

  • Invasive cable means we have to drill a hole to install some form of hardware.
  • Non-invasive means we do not have to drill into the tree.

Our Atlas crew have been installing cables for over 30 years. As new products come to the market, we analyze them and test them. Your sales rep or arborist will advise you of the best cable option for your situation.

Tree Bracing Services

Tree bracing uses steel rods to add rigid support to a tree for weak areas, split crotches and, reinforcing decayed areas. Most of the time this method is used in combination with cabling.
