There are many tree defects, factors, and conditions that can compromise the structural integrity of a tree. At, Elk Grove Tree Care, we have certified arborists who have the expertise to identify these issues. After we identify the source of a structural defect, we will create a supplemental support system that will help to mitigate the risk.
Each of these situations is unique and requires our experienced arborists who are familiar with bracing, guying, cabling and other support systems. If you need tree bracing at the best price, you can get in touch with us on (916) 680-8477. We will come to your property to determine the best type of support system.
Here are some of the support systems we will use on your tree:
If your tree has any kind of structural defect like a cavity, crack, co-dominant union, we will recommend tree cabling. When the upper part of the canopy is pushed by the wind, this increases the amount of force and stress on weak areas and may cause the tree to fall. Cabling can help to prevent increased force when a portion of the tree is secured to another.
This is often done to close to the union or crotch. The process is usually straight forward. First, we will try to determine the number and sizes of rods necessary to support a stressed part. If the amount of separation is significant, we use a tensioning device such as come-along to close the gap. After doing that, we will drill holes in the trunk. We will then insert the threaded steel rod through the truck before securing it using nuts and washers. In most cases, we do cabling together with tree bracing.
Tree cabling and bracing is an important method of protecting weak limbs and branches from damages. The goal is to supplement the structural support and therefore provide stability in severe weather conditions. This may be needed in:
When cables are properly installed, they can help to support your tree during violent storms. These can limit the supported branches’ movement and this means they will not easily break during the high wind or from snow and ice.
Tree cabling and bracing are best left to the experts. If you suspect that your tree is weakening, you should get in touch with Elk Grove Tree Care. We will be able to notice areas with weaknesses and where support is needed. When you contact us, we will respond fast and this is good for your tree’s health. A cabling and the bracing system requires minimal maintenance but needed to be inspected regularly for support. You can reach us on (916) 680-8477 for all your tree support systems.
