When Should Cabling & Bracing Be Used?

Indianapolis cabling & bracing services

We use cabling and bracing in Indianapolis to reduce the risk of tree or limb failure. Cabling is used to support dangerous or damaged limbs as well as junctions known as crotches. Bracing on the other hand uses steel rods to provide more rigid support. Certain trees will be more prone to these issues than others. Our professional arborists will be happy to visit your property and evaluate your trees in order to best advise you on which branches and crotches would benefit.

What does cabling and bracing entail?

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

Bracing is used to repair split crotches or stabilize weak crotches. It can also be used to hold limbs together or apart as necessary. This involves placing machine threaded or wood screw rods through adjacent branches. The size of a rod differs based on the tree or limb being braced.
