Of the many services we offer at Vision Tree Service, tree bracing can arguably have one of the most significant impacts. Tree bracing is one of our ISA Certified Arborists’ primary methods to stabilize a tree on the verge of having a critical and negative change in its structure and growth. In unique situations when removing a damaged branch or part of a tree would reduce its aesthetic value, tree bracing and tree cabling are crucial options to consider.
Tree cabling and or bracing creates a support system for your tree. A tree support system not only gives your tree added strength but can also help ensure that broken or damaged trunks and branches have a chance to heal before becoming dangerous or destructive.
Understanding Tree Bracing: The Process, Explained
Tree bracing is a static system providing rigid support that aims to minimize the impact of the forces that can occur during high winds and violent weather. The process usually centers on installing threaded steel rods into weak points of connection. It is often done in conjunction with a network of cables higher in the tree’s crown. While tree cabling provides support to weak limbs, tree bracing focuses on addressing weak fork unions. These junctions will be where a large branch meets and joins the trunk of a tree or where a trunk begins to split into smaller segments.
Weak Fork Unions, Tree Crotches, and More
When discussing tree bracing, it’s beneficial to understand what a “tree crotch” is: a pocket located at the bottom of a point of connection, where two or more tree limbs or tree trunks form a union. There are several forms and types of tree crotches.
- Trunk-branch crotch: where the tree branch grows directly from the tree trunk, creating a pocket where they meet.
- Co-dominant stems form a crotch: two or more tree trunks that grow from or meet at the tree’s base and create a tree pocket, where water or animals can settle.
- Branch-branch crotches: where two branches meet at one point, creating a pocket.
ISA Certified Arborists rely on high quality, trustworthy cabling and bracing materials when trees are at risk of structural failure. Thanks to advancements in the area of tree bracing and tree cabling, various materials and parts designed to lend support and increase safety are utilized to carry out bracing work. When the situation allows, non-invasive methods are always preferable and will be considered.
Proactive Measures Help Ensure the Longevity of Your Trees
There are a number of factors that go into deciding to brace or cable your tree, and the ISA Certified Arborists at Vision Tree Service are highly trained and experienced in knowing the best path to take. All trees require a thorough risk assessment before any bracing work is conducted. This evaluation is critically important due to the fact that bracing is NO substitute for removal or trimming when the SAFETY of the tree and those around it is in question.
