Tree Cabling & Bracing
When storms occur, they leave a number of damages in their wake. A good percentage of these damages are done to trees. Broken tree branches and uprooted trees are the familiar sights after a storm. Tree cabling and bracing are the best methods for protecting your tree from North Carolina storms. Tree cabling and bracing involve the process of providing support for trees with the aid of materials such as strong and flexible steel cables, bracing rods and bolts. When it comes to delivering premium tree cabling services, there is no tree service company ahead of us in Wilmington.
A Better Option
When a tree starts showing signs of structural weakness, it doesn't have to be cut down. By cabling and bracing a tree, arborists give trees a new and better shot at life. We will give your tree a professional inspection so as to detect the weakest points in it. The procedure will give your tree more support in the needed areas. Contrary to what some people think, cabling and bracing don't affect the appearance of your tree. If anything, the process will make your tree appear better as your tree will be more balanced and upright.
Tree cabling and bracing will provide support to a healthy tree that has suffered any form of damage. The procedure also prevents a tree from becoming diseased. For bacteria and other disease-causing organisms to infect a tree, they require an opening. A split in a tree's branch or trunk provides the opening for infection. It's more or less an open wound. Such a tree can be saved by cabling and bracing the compromised areas. It is essential to note that without the right level of experience, skill, and materials, the procedure may end up being a waste of time.
A tree is meant to beautify your property. But when it grows disproportionately or becomes damaged due to the effect of weather, it becomes unsafe to have around homes, structures, paths, and playgrounds. Structural problems that can make a tree unsafe include codominant stems, included backs, and overgrown limbs. We can help you solve this problem by securing the tree's trunks and branches through cabling and bracing. Tree cabling and bracing can also be done to make a tree less susceptible to weather damage. When done in advance, you will be able to sleep better through a storm as your tree will have a much better chance of survival.
After we successfully save your tree by cabling and bracing it, we will not turn our backs. For the continued safety and healthiness of a cabled tree, it is essential that it is inspected from time to time. Regular inspections are necessary because as the tree continues to grow, the cables and braces may need some adjustment. When the necessary adjustments are not done over time, it may result in girdling. Girdling will prevent the flow of nutrients around the tree and also make some parts unstable. It may eventually kill a tree.
