Cable and Bracing
Cabling and bracing techniques are used to reduce the risk of primary branch failure. In large trees high strength steel cables are installed in the upper crown of the tree to reduce movement. Attachment of the cable to the branch is done by using J-Hooks or Eye bolt hardware all in accordance with ANSI standards.
Structurally weak or damaged limbs can be supported using various bracing techniques for the purpose of preventing large branch failure. These same bracing techniques are often used when a tree has failed but the removal of the tree or of the failed branch is not desired. Your certified arborist can identify weak points in the tree and make the proper recommendations.
A “Rigid Type Bracing System” is used here to repair a tree that has split. Trees may split for a variety of reasons.

It’s not very often things happen right the first time and even less often things go well enough that a person might be prompted to write and express his pleasure at the welcome outcome. This is one of those times for me. Chris Mest was wonderfully informed, and both patient and forthcoming as we discussed what needed to be done with my trees. On the day of the pruning, Felipe and the rest of his crew, were courteous, professional, hard working and neat as pins. And the results are outstanding. The trees look better, the patio gets more sunlight, the whole yard feels airier and I no longer have to dodge low hanging limbs as I mow the lawn! Your people did a terrific job. Thanks to all of them. You can bet I’ll be recommending Urban Arborist at every opportunity.John G.
