Samsara Tree Cabling & Bracing:

Tree cabling and bracing is a holistic term encompassing several forms of tree support systems. These systems are uniquely designed to fortify your trees, significantly reducing potential structural issues while promoting their overall health, longevity, and safety.

Tree Assessment

Our certified arborists thoroughly assess the tree’s structure, identifying any weak or potentially hazardous areas. We evaluate factors such as multiple trunks, included bark, weak branch unions, or signs of previous failures.

Cabling Design & Planning

Our arborists develop a customized cable support system plan based on the assessment. This plan outlines the specific locations for installing cables, the type and size of cables to be used, and the appropriate hardware required.

Tree Cable Installation

Our experienced tree care professionals carefully install the cables, using specialized equipment and following industry best practices. The installation process typically involves attaching high-strength steel cables to the tree’s branches or trunks to reduce stress and promote stability.

Tree Cable Inspections and Maintenance

We recommend regular inspections of trees with cable support systems to ensure their ongoing effectiveness. Our team conducts periodic assessments, checking the condition of the cables, hardware, and tree structure. If necessary, we perform any maintenance or adjustments to maintain the integrity of the tree support system.

Safety Considerations

Safety is paramount during the installation and maintenance of cable support systems. Our team follows rigorous safety protocols, uses appropriate personal protective equipment, and takes measures to protect nearby structures, utility lines, and people throughout the process.

Tree cabling and bracing involve installing flexible cables or rigid rods to support the structure of the tree, particularly those with weak or multiple trunks. This helps to prevent splitting and breaking during severe weather conditions.

If your trees have weak or split trunks, they are susceptible to storm damage. Cabling and bracing can support the structure and prolong the tree’s life, preserving its beauty and the safety of your property.

The frequency depends on the tree’s health and species, and environmental conditions. Our licensed arborists can provide an assessment and recommend a schedule.

No, when done correctly, by professionals, tree cabling and bracing do not harm the tree. In fact, these methods can actually extend the tree’s life by offering structural support.
