Cabling and Bracing should only be done by a certified arborist after it has been thoroughly inspected and evaluated.
Cables and brace rods are structural supports that reduce the chance of breakage from branches that have become weak or fatigued from stormy weather. The cables are high strength steel that are attached to bolts installed in the upper crown of a tree. They limit the movement of the supported branches so they are less likely to have damage during high winds or storms.
Braces are made from threaded eye bolts that are installed into the branches to make them more rigid for the violent and windy storms.
