When should cabling and bracing be used?

tree cabling bracing indianapolisCabling and bracing are methods of stabilization that should only be used if these supports successfully reduce the risk of tree or limb failure to acceptable levels. Cabling can be used to support dangerous or damaged limbs as well as junctions known as crotches. Bracing on the other hands uses steel rods to provide more rigid support when needed. Certain trees will be more prone to these issues than others. The professional arborists at Menchhofer Tree Care will be happy to visit your property and evaluate your trees in order to best advise you on which branches and crotches may need this type of protection and support.

What does cabling and bracing entail?

Using common anchors such as eyebolts combined with thimbles and cables, cabling can support tree branches and protect them from failure. There are a number of different cabling systems that our arborists may choose from in order to best support the horizontal branches of your tree. This is particularly useful for unusually large and heavy branches.

Bracing is used to repair split crotches, or stabilize weak crotches, as well as holding limbs either together or apart as necessary. This involves placing machine threaded or wood screw rods through the adjacent branches. The size of the rods will vary depending on the tree or crotch that is being braced.
