Cabling & Bracing

All trees are not created equal. Since some of the most beautiful trees may be structurally weak, our Certified Arborists recognize structure problems and recommend proper action. Structural problems are most apparent at tree forks, where limbs (and even trunks) grow at acute angles and fight for space. Eventually wind, snow, ice, or even the weight of their own branches can cause the weaker of the two limbs to break. The chances of this happening can be reduced by cabling and bracing. Our arborists brace the weak area with special steel rods and install cables in the crown to reduce the stress. After a few years these repairs are virtually invisible.

Lightning Protection for trees

Lightning Protection

The dangers lightning poses to trees, life and property are well known. What is less well known is that all trees are not equally susceptible to lightning strikes. Our Certified Arborists can identify which trees attract lightning most, and how to protect them, your property, and you.

Signs Your Storm-Damaged Tree May Need Removed

Here are signs that your storm-damaged tree may need to be removed:

  • Trees with cracks that affect more than half of the main trunk
  • If your tree is leaning and lost half of its branches

A tree risk assessment by your local certified arborist can help determine if the tree’s structure has been affected.

Your arborist will carefully assess your tree for signs of failure and recommend the best next step. If there’s structural damage or your tree poses a safety risk, tree removal may be recommended.

  • Splits in tree branches
  • Broken or uneven treetop (also called the canopy)
