Benefits Of Tree Cabling & Tree Bracing
Helps Prevent Tree Or Branch From Cracking
While your trees may be growing in a very healthy condition, they may be growing with a “V-crotch” in their trunk, making them vulnerable to cracking and breaking. To prevent your tree from snapping, tree cabling or tree bracing is used to support the tree’s structural integrity. Cabling and bracing reduce the stress faced in the weak areas by restricting movement by wind.
V-Crotches, however, can be avoided at a young age of a tree through regular and proper pruning. We prune and trim trees in The Ridge at Lantana, Austin, to help your tree grow with strong structural integrity from a young age.
Tree Cabling And Tree Bracing Restore The Structural Strength Of Damaged Trees.
If you did not conduct timely and proper trimming for your trees at a young age, you still have an option to restore their structural integrity when they have grown and matured. At times, when a tree grew with a weak structure, its branches may crack and break, compromising the whole tree. Installing cabling or bracing can help restore the structural strength of such trees. Tree bracing and tree cabling can also help prolong the life of your tree by preventing any further cracking and breaking.
Protect Your Properties
If you have properties near a tree, you need to provide proper reinforcements to trees that you feel are vulnerable to breaking when there’s strong wind or extreme weather conditions.
Regardless of the perfect health, the tree may display, there is always a potential risk of breaking without warning. Trees can fall on your car, house, patio, or driveways and cause damage that may be costly to repair. It is always best to prevent such damages since you can choose tree cabling and tree bracing.
You Still Need Regular Maintenance For Your Tree Cabling And Bracing
After tree cabling and bracing, you don’t neglect the tree and never perform regular checkups. Always call us for regular inspection on your tree and perform reinforcing services if needed to keep you and your loved ones safe in The Ridge at Lantana, Austin.
