Cabling, Bracing and Repair

  • Cabling: Reinforce weak limbs to promote the health of your trees!
    • Sometimes nature gives an otherwise beautiful tree weak limbs. Ideally, forks should be formed in the shape of a “U”, but sometimes form a “V” instead. Then, as the two limbs grow, they compete with each other for available space until the weaker limb beaks. Our Arborists can insert a threaded rod at the fork and then a network of cables up in the crown to reduce the weight and the wind’s effect on the narrow fork.
  • Repair: Storms happen!
    • Upstate New York is known to have a storm every so often. Trees take the brunt of the wind and weather that storms throw at us. We recommend pruning services as a preventative measure for Hazard Reduction. However, if a storm does get the better of your trees, proper repair cuts, pruning and evaluation is highly recommended. Further steps to encourage the vitality and vigor of your tree may also be recommended.
