Ever wonder why trees split and fall apart? Often, a tree’s natural growth will create a structure with weak branches or trunks that divide into multiple stems that are prone to splitting. This can result in the harm of a person or pet or cause expensive property damage.

Trees such as this can often be saved by proper cabling and bracing. Cabling and bracing applies artificial support to a structurally weakened or damaged tree. Properly installed cables can stabilize tree limbs and prevent them from splitting away by reducing stress at the tree’s weakest points. This is especially important for large trees located around houses, outbuildings, and other high-value “targets.”

The first step in protecting vulnerable trees is to schedule an appointment with one of our ISA Certified Arborists, who will inspect your tree and determine the best course of action.

Commonly Asked Questions


A. We cable trees to help support weak limbs or limb crotches. They do not “fix” weak limbs, but rather, they reduce the risk of splitting.

A. That depends on the nature of the defect that the cable is addressing, the size of the tree, and how fast the tree is growing. The cable should be visually inspected on an annual basis by a certified arborist.
