Cabling and Bracing

cabling_and_bracingCable bracing is used to support structurally weak trees that are susceptible to damage from winds, storms, or even the weight of their own foliage. This support technique uses hardware to make the tree more structurally stable and help reduce the chance of tree failure. Here at BC Plant Health Care we use traditional (static) cabling techniques and progressive (dynamic) cabling techniques.

BC Plant Health Care uses two types of systems.

Static Systems (Steel cable & eye bolts drilled into tree)

This is an invasive technique that is warranted in some situations.

Dynamic Systems (Synthetic cable wrapped around tree)

This is a non-invasive technique that is warranted is some situations.

All cabling requires post installation inspection by an ISA Certified Arborist and Tree Risk Assessor.
