Cabling is done to offer further support for trees with structural problems or poor architecture. There are two cabling options available: Static or Dynamic and one is chosen, depending on the type of tree. Learn more about these options below or you can contact our certified arborists to help decide if cabling is appropriate for your tree.
These steel cables are attached between two stems by drilling into each. This helps to minimize the movement of the supported stems and provide support to weak or failing attachments. More than one cable is often needed to sufficiently support the weight of the limbs.
These cables consists of woven, rope-like material that is spliced around the stems of the tree between the stems being supported. It aids in balancing their weight against each other. It also allows for more natural movement while still providing support. More than one cable may be required.
