When selecting and planting new trees for your property, there are a number of questions you should ask yourself:

  • What are the best types of trees for Georgia’s soil and weather?
  • What’s the best way to fertilize and water my new trees?
  • How do I tie down my newly planted trees to prevent them from being blown over?
  • What are the best types of ornamental flowering trees?
  • What are the best types of fruit-bearing trees?
  • How far away from my house and driveway should a tree be planted?

Remember: a well-placed tree in your yard can add beauty, help keep your home cooling bills down, and provide privacy or a visual screen. However, planting the wrong types of trees, too many trees, or placing trees in the wrong spot can cause a lot of problems down the road. The key is good planning in advance!

TREE CABLING

Wind bracing and support for newly planted trees

Tree cabling and bracing is used to support structurally weak trees that are susceptible to wind and storm damage, or even the weight of their own foliage. This support technique uses hardware to make the tree more structurally stable.

As arborists, it is our job to safeguard people, property and the environment from potentially hazardous trees. Tree cabling holds a tree in a stationary position while its root systems develop. Tree cabling is especially beneficial for newly planted trees, but it must be done in a manner that does not cut into tree trunks or limbs. Understand, too, that the tree cabling may need to be adjusted as the tree grows.

When Is Cable Bracing Required?

We recommend cabling for trees when:

  • They are newly planted and have no established root structure.
  • They have weak branches or signs of splits.
  • The trunk leans more than 15 degrees.
  • It is a multi-Stem trees such as Bradford Pear.
  • The tree has stress damage from wind or ice weight.

Tree cabling and bracing techniques

Tree cabling and bracing is more than a rope tied to a tree and a stake in the ground. Proper tree cabling is attached to a tree in a way that it will not damage the trunk or limbs. This is accomplished by the use of special hardware and rubber sleeves for wire cables. The cabling, from ground to tree, needs to be at specific angles. The amount of time that cabling needs to remain in place varies on the situation.

If you have weak, damaged or newly planted trees and you think they may need to be cabled and braced, please contact us today. Our certified arborist has years of experience with tree cabling and bracing, and can determine the best course of action in terms of structural integrity.

If you have severely damaged, dead or dying limbs, we can trim those for you as well. This is important to do, since trimming off dead or damaged branches promotes good overall tree health. Keep in mind weak limbs are not always obvious, to it’s always helpful to have a professional arborist come out and assess your trees.
