Cabling & Bracing

Not all questionable trees need to be removed. Support can be added to weakly attached branches to help prevent failure and loss of limbs. For many applications, we install a Cobra Tree cabling system. Cobra is a dynamic, non-invasive tree cable. It is shock absorbing, non-girdling, and self adjusting. The idea behind Cobra is to allow trees to continue their path of self-support while providing supplemental strength in times of great stress as heightened stress is what causes most trees to crack and fail. Some tree problems can be repaired with one or more bracing rods. When the tree is split but still healthy otherwise, you can safely get years of enjoyment out of the whole tree without worry by installing bracing rods. In some extreme instances, the split may have already advanced to the point of failure, leaving an open wound. If we are contacted within a timely manner of the break, we have the ability to draw the wound closed and install an Extra High Strength cable under pressure. The EHS cable has a breaking strength of up to 15,000 lbs. Timing is crucial, so be sure to call within the first 24 hours of the split breaking open.

The Whole Job Was a Success

The whole job was a success to me, from the removing of the trees, the stumps, filling in with dirt, planting of the new tree, trimming the other tree to the cleanup. You did an amazing job, and in record time. You have a hard working crew.
