Cabling & Bracing in Dallas, TX

TreeTech provides expert cabling and bracing services for trees in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Trees may require supplemental support due to fast growth, poor pruning practices, and storm
damage. Some trees even need cabling and/or bracing because of their natural growth form and their propensity for poor structure when grown in the open.

When a tree’s physical structure cannot support its own growth, it increases the risk of partial or whole tree failure. Given the right circumstances, a tree of any size and health can fail, even those without a structural defect. TreeTech’s experienced ISA Certified Arborists can assess your trees and determine if cabling and bracing are appropriate recommendations. Cabling and bracing provide supplemental support but do not guarantee a tree will never fail. Cables and braces should be inspected on a regular basis and at times replaced. Call TreeTech today if you feel your trees may require additional support or if you have trees that have been cabled for years with no inspection.

How is Cabling and Bracing Used?

Cables and braces are structural supports intended to prevent weak branches and trunks from falling. Cables are made of durable steel and are attached to bolts that are installed in the upper crown of a tree. They are intended to limit the movement of the supported branches, rendering them less likely to fail during storms. Braces are rods that are installed through unions of weak branches and multiple stems to provide more rigid support from twisting forces that can occur in violent weather.

It’s important to have cabling and bracing hardware inspected annually, as it can become subject to the very elements it protects your trees from. Additionally, the normal movement of branches or trunks can cause cables and braces to wear, reducing their load-carrying abilities. These inspections are particularly important if a cabling or bracing failure could result in property damage or personal injury.
